Former Anglo-Catholic blogger John Hunwicke is among 21 men to be ordained priests for the ordinariate this year.

Mr Hunwicke, a former Anglican priest and Senior Research Fellow at Pusey House, Oxford, stopped his influential blog last June, saying his ordination had been “deferred” because of a misunderstanding over the blog’s content.

The full list of candidates for the priesthood has been published on the website of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham.

Their ordinations will bring the number of ordinariate priests to about 80.
