New Anglican bishop ordained in New Zealand

Posted by Kendall Harmon

The church's essential mission is to "proclaim the Kingdom of God", the Right Rev Dr Kelvin Wright, the newly ordained Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Dunedin, says.

Dr Wright, who previously spent 11 years as vicar of St John's, Rosyn, was ordained the ninth bishop of the diocese in a ceremony attended by more than 400 people who almost filled St Paul's Cathedral on Saturday afternoon.

Some travelled from various parts of the North Island to attend and one person came from the Middle East.

"We have to proclaim the Kingdom of God," Dr Wright said after being formally ordained as bishop.

"All of us are loved by God and accepted by God."

Interesting juxtaposition of this with the other article, Christopher Page—Reports of Anglican Church of Canada extinction exaggerated. Whom to believe?
