I cannot stress strongly enough that these actions do not constitute a definitive or complete response to the Primates’ Communiqué. These actions, along with others taken in the past by both The House of Bishops and the General Convention, state clearly and unequivocally the commitment of The Episcopal Church to the Anglican Communion. These actions, while clearly rejecting the proposed pastoral scheme of the Primates, also make clear the commitment of The Episcopal Church to meeting the same pastoral concerns raised by the Primates but in ways that are consistent with our Constitution and Canons and guard the integrity of our church.
Largest Episcopal Church in Colorado to Leave Denomination.
The vestry of Grace Church and St. Stephen’s Parish in Colorado Springs, the largest Episcopal parish in the state and one of Colorado’s oldest churches, voted to leave the Episcopal Church on Monday morning. Effective today the parish affiliates with the Convocation of Anglicans in North America (CANA), a missionary diocese of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican).
