Victoria Congress of Traditional Anglicans Gather to Ponder their Future

They have come from as far away as Australia, New Zealand, England the US, and, of course, Canada. They have gathered here as the leaders of the ancient orders of Anglicanism, true believers who have never wavered over which is the authentic Book of Common Prayer, the proper order of services and an all male priesthood. These Anglo-Catholics have been despised and rejected by the broader Anglican Communion. They live in self-imposed exile, small but faithful and proud.

Present are Archbishop John Haverland, Primate of the Anglican Catholic Church; Archbishop Eugene Provence, Primate of the Anglican Province of Christ the King (APCK); The Rt. Rev. Brian Marsh, Presiding Bishop of the Anglican Church in America; the Most Rev. Ted Casimes, Archbishop of the Christian Episcopal Church of the US; and Bishop Robert D. Redmile of the Christian Episcopal Church, Richmond, BC. Bishop Peter Robinson of the UECNA could not attend owing to a family illness.

The congress is being hosted by St Mark's Church and is being held June 1 - 4 at the historic St Anne's Chapel in Victoria. Traditional Anglicans from a wide spectrum of jurisdictions will take part in study groups and discussions.
