The Network of Anglican Communion Dioceses and Parishes, also known as the Anglican Communion Network, advertises itself still as a network of ten dioceses: they are listed as Albany, Central Florida, Dallas, Fort Worth, Pittsburgh, Quincy, Rio Grande, San Joaquin, South Carolina and Springfield.
Rio Grande never got totally on board, and now Central Florida has withdrawn its episcopal endorsement. That means eight are left. San Joaquin however one judges the matter is in no long ACN material, but Common Cause Partnership material by way of the Southern Cone. That makes seven.
Well, remember, it doesn't make much difference. The real ride into the sunset is now the Common Cause Partnership. The Living Church, which ran the story on Bishop Howe's withdrawal from ACN and connection with the Anglican Communion Institute, reported, "Bishop Howe was critical of Bishop Duncan’s leadership as Network moderator, saying that Bishop Duncan is clearly committed to forming “a new ecclesiastical structure” in North America, hoping to draw together the so-called Anglican diaspora. This group includes, among others, the Anglican Mission in the Americas (Rwanda), the Convocation of Anglicans in North America (Nigeria), the Reformed Episcopal Church, which broke away from The Episcopal Church over ecumenism and ritual in the 1870s, as well as various other groups associated with African or South American jurisdictions." This new ecclesiastical structure is the Province of North America which GAFCON / Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans is recommending be formed.
Bishop Howe has every reason to distance himself from this effort. ACN has effectively been melded into the CCP which is will gather together three different sorts of Anglican groups - Dioceses of the Episcopal Church, independent agencies (the American Anglican Council) and a range of independent and simi-independent church bodies (CANA, AMiA, REC). ACN is now defunct in fact.
Bishop Howe has seen clearly where the ACN and CCP is going and has stepped away. Good for him.
