From blogforlovers
Church Unity Octave
Started by Fr Paul James Francis Wattson, an Anglo-Catholic, and his Franciscan order, the Society of the Atonement. Far from being indifferentists, they defended the (all-male, episcopal) apostolic ministry, becoming Roman Catholics in 1909 after the Episcopal Church voted in 1908 to allow non-episcopal ministers to preach from its pulpits. (Fr Paul's stance now seems something ironically the now-RC SA order are ashamed of - but that isn't surprising anymore.)
