Anglican faction to have a new church in Victoria

Posted by Kendall Harmon

A new faction of the Anglican Church is to open today in Victoria, a third offshoot in the fractured church.

St. Mark's Traditional Anglican Church is to have its first service at 5 p.m. today at St. Ann's Chapel on Humboldt Street, with its own church location to be announced within the next month.

Just how many people will show up at the service and be part of the congregation isn't known. But with several local Anglican churches in the region closing and the rift in the church over the episcopal constitution, which was announced last October, there are Anglicans looking for a home, said Canon Stanley Sinclair of St. Mark's.

Pretty convoluted writing, but the content is clear enough: There are several Continuing bodies that don’t want any part of the Pope or of the Canterbury Communion, which will welcome those of the Anglican Catholic Church of Canada who aren’t cool with Anglicanorum Coetibus. We need to pray for them and they for us. Nothing to be upset about.

This calvinist Anglican is happy to hear that the tradionalist Anglican Province of Christ the King is opening another congregation. I hope that this proves a blessing for many who have been forced out of the established Anglican Church in Canada by the rampant liberal apostasy of its leaders. May St Marks grow in every way.

One passage in the article intrigued me:

Under that constitution, traditional Anglicans could unite with the Roman Catholic Church but, among other things, the clergy would have to be ordinated again

I hope it doesn’t hurt when they are “ordinated”...
