"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

The Anglican Church in North America

The new province's constitution has just been presented in Wheaton, Illinois, and was unanimously approved by the delegates present. It will officially go into effect at our first provincial synod six months from now. And that "birthday" of the new province--THE ANGLICAN CHURCH IN NORTH AMERICA--will take place at St. Vincent's Cathedral in Bedford! Just think: Anglican history will be made again on the gym floor of St. Vincent's School!

The text of the ACNA constitution may be found here or here. The first set of canons may be found here.
