Eleven clergy resign in New Westminster

[Virtue Online] 26 Apr 2008--Eleven members of the clergy in the Vancouver-based diocese of New Westminster on April 21 resigned due to theological conflicts with the diocese and Bishop Michael Ingham, but said they intend to continue their parish ministry under the jurisdiction of an Anglican province in South America.

The nine priests and two deacons, in a letter to Bishop Ingham, said "it is our intention to remain members of the Anglican church" but "we cannot continue the Anglican ministry to which we were ordained under your jurisdiction."
