Joint Catholic Anglican Confirmation stopped by the Vatican

Vatican halts bishops' joint church service - Local News - News - General - The Herald:

The Vatican has put a stop to a joint Pentecostal service planned by the Newcastle and Maitland Catholic and Anglican bishops.

The confirmation service was scheduled for May 31 at Christ Church Cathedral, and was promoted as a 'very exciting and special' event.

Parishes encouraged church members to consider being confirmed on that day.

But Rome intervened, forcing its cancellation, citing the possibility of 'confusing messages' being given to churchgoers.
