Continuing Home

The ongoing saga of a Continuing Anglican church home, as seen by a member of the laity.

Monday, July 02, 2007


The anticipated news came while we were on the road Friday: our Bishop James Provence is now Archbishop-elect of the APCK!

We were almost in the neighborhood at the time, having been on the road to California since Thursday morning and were in the vicinity of Sacramento, just a couple hours or so away, on the way to celebrate my father's 80th birthday AND 50th anniversary of his ordination. We'd considered attending St. Peter's for the Mass and election Friday morning, but it was just a bit too far. So we just had to wait until we got the call on the cellphone.

This was not a big surprise, I guess, though I've only met one other of our bishops. Also not a surprise is that Archbishop Morse will keep a hand in on the seminary, St. Joseph of Arimathea, which I am told is a top-notch seminary -- hard to obtain admission (many applicants are turned away) and even harder to graduate from. But all the graduates I've known are top-notch, including (especially) Fr. Daniel. The seminary has always been a special interest to Archbishop Morse, and no doubt will retain its excellent standards under his continued guidance.

I'm just hoping this doesn't cancel Bishop Provence's plans to go camping with us at the First Annual Diocese of the Western States camp outing at Mt. Lassen National Park later this month!

Update 7/05: I talked with him Tuesday and he's going to be there!
