Diocese of Central Florida closer to resolving ‘disaffiliation’ issues

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Central Florida's Diocesan Board on Jan. 18 moved closer to resolving questions about seven rectors’ stated intention to disaffiliate from The Episcopal Church.

On Thursday, October 18, 2007, the rectors and senior wardens of seven parishes of the Episcopal Diocese of Central Florida, and two church planters, met with Bishop John W. Howe and representatives of the Diocese to discuss the possible scenarios by which all or part of the congregations might leave The Episcopal Church.

The parishes are Gloria Dei, Cocoa; St. Anne's, Crystal River; Good Shepherd, Maitland; St. Edward's, Mount Dora; Grace, Ocala; Holy Cross, Winter Haven; and Trinity, Vero Beach. The "church plants" are St. Philip's, Lake Nona; and St. Nicholas, Poinciana.

From the results, it seems like keeping the property was never realistically on the table. I wonder if that was the impetus for the church that had a ‘change of heart’ and stayed with TEC.
