Here they are: ACNA Bishops gathered after the Service on Sunday. Most are those who make up the ACNA College of Bishops. Some are visitors.
Their number will be increased by three more elected (by the College) for Canada:
The Venerable Charles Masters, Executive Archdeacon
The Venerable Dr Trevor Walters, Archdeacon for BC
The Rev Stephen Leung, rector, Church of the Good Shepherd (Vancouver, BC)
Three bishops-designate from the dioceses of the Anglican Mission in the Americas previously selected by the Anglican Province of Rwanda.
The Rev Dr Todd Hunter, leader of Churches for the Sake of Others
The Rev Canon Doc Loomis, Canon Missioner for AMiA;
The Rev Silas TAK Yin Ng, rector, Richmond Emmanuel (Richmond, BC)
For the Diocese of Western Anglicans
The Rev William Thompson
For Forward in Faith Diocese in formation
The Rev William Ilgenfritz
All in all 8 new bishops.
ACNA seems to have learned its bishop strategies from the Province of the Southern Cone, where, as Bishop Fran Lyons said today, the Province has decided on a amazing expansion of bishops, particularly given that the whole Province has perhaps 25,000 people.
What will become of all of them?
