Here's a bit of the article from the California Catholic Daily;
“United, but not absorbed”
Traditional Anglicans in California a step closer to full communion with Rome

Bishop Daren Williams, leader of the Diocese of the West of the traditionalist Anglican Church in America, has called an extraordinary synod for July 1 at All Saint’s Anglican Church in Fountain Valley, the diocese’s cathedral parish, “to gather for prayer and discussion regarding the opportunity for the Diocese of the West to enter into communion with the Roman Catholic Church under the structure of a Personal Anglican Ordinariate.”

On Nov. 11, 2009, Pope Benedict XVI issued the apostolic constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus, “providing for personal ordinariates for Anglicans entering into full communion with the Catholic Church.”

“In recent times the Holy Spirit has moved groups of Anglicans to petition repeatedly and insistently to be received into full Catholic communion individually as well as corporately,” says the opening paragraph of the apostolic constitution. “The Apostolic See has responded favorably to such petitions. Indeed, the successor of Peter, mandated by the Lord Jesus to guarantee the unity of the episcopate and to preside over and safeguard the universal communion of all the Churches, could not fail to make available the means necessary to bring this holy desire to realization.”
