Venables to visit Fort Worth

Following on earlier news that the constitution and canons of the Southern Cone pose impediments to those who would propose to create US-based affiliates, the Diocese of Fort Worth today announces that the Presiding Bishop of the Southern Cone will visit the diocese in May:

On Friday, May 2, Archbishop Venables will meet with all the clergy of the Diocese at the Church of the Holy Apostles, and then on Saturday, May 3, he will address a specially-called Convocation of the 2008 convention delegates at St. Vincent’s Cathedral. The purpose of the convocation is to provide information: Archbishop Venables will answer questions from the delegates, but no legislation will be considered.

The Diocese of Fort Worth is considering aligning with the Province of the Southern Cone, and this visit will help clarify the practicalities, benefits, and possible drawbacks of such a move.
