Global South Primates Confirm Meeting Next Week
As indicated in the Kigali Communiqué (September 2006), we will be holding a consultation with the leadership of Episcopal dioceses requesting Alternative Primatial Oversight (APO). Our aim is to investigate their appeal in greater detail and identify possible responses.
We will also meet leaders from dioceses who may not have specifically requested for APO, but will like to explore together what the steps forward may be. We will meet after the Nov 12-15 Anglican Relief and Development Fund (ARDF) Trustees meeting, at a separate location.
Since these consultations are confidential there will be no provision for media access. We would, however, welcome your prayers. A number of the primates have also been sent an invitation by Presiding Bishop Jefferts Schorri. They will be responding to her in due course through private communication.
Archbishop John Chew,
Secretary for Global South Steering Committee
