Phrase, "Reformed Catholicity," Shows Up in All Sorts of Places

Way back when (on 9 December 2002, to be exact), I posted something from the FAQ page of St. Stephen's Traditional Episcopal Church, Flowood, MS (near Jackson). Here's a new FAQ from their updated page:

Are you Anglo-Catholics or Evangelicals?

We are evangelical in that we take very serious the Great Commission to preach the Gospel. It is our duty to not only Worship God in Spirit and in Truth, but to also take the Light of Christ into the World and to call out to the Lost with the Truth of Salvation in Christ alone, through Faith. We are Anglo-Catholic in that we believe that there is only One Church and it is 'catholic', namely holding all things together with one voice, mind, and heart, joined together by One Spirit. Our churchmanship, or ritual expression in worship is moderate - not exactly low and not particularly high either except on certain Feast Days in the Church year. Our catholicity is also our commitment to not fall into a modernistic rationalism, a self interpreting Church without regard to the teaching, tradition, and practices of the ancient Church. Word and Sacrament - Reformed Catholicity - the true 'bridge' Church or via media.
This answer commendably appropriates terms left and right (namely "evangelical" and "Anglo-Catholic"), but one of its more interesting features, to me, is the occurrence of the phrase, "Reformed Catholicity." The PPLN, the AAPC, St. Stephen's - where will "Reformed Catholicity" turn up next?
