Rome-leaning Anglicans in Japan

On the Groups of Anglicans forum of The Anglo Catholic, was posted this:

I'm already in fellowship with the TAC [Traditional Anglican Communion] Anglicans here, most of whom I would not expect to post messages on this English language forum, but perhaps there are some English speaking Anglicans in Japan (and are lurking on these forums) whom I have not met.

BTW the Nippon Kirisuto Sei Ko Kai (The Japanese member Church of the Traditional Anglican Communion) finally has a web site, all in Japanese of course: http://www.nkskk.org/

It is unclear to me whether this part of the TAC has voted to follow their archbishop and most of the TAC into union with Rome. I hope to have this clarified soon.

Making matters more difficult, this is one of a handful of member churches of the TAC who are outside of countries expected to have Anglican Ordinariates. If they do decide to follow, what will be their status within the Catholic Church? The answer to this question will only become clear as the Ordinariates are established over the next year or so.

In the meantime, please keep them in your prayers. May they soon join us in bringing Anglicanism to the Roman Catholic Church in East Asia.
