"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

Diocese of Northern Mexico Sends Greetings and Offers Prayers for our Diocese

The diocese of Northern Mexico of the Iglesia Anglicana de Mexico, a sister diocese of the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth--Anglican Province of the Southern Cone (pending formation of the Anglican Church of North America, God willing), has sent "warmest greetings" to Bishop Iker and the people of our diocese and has offered "prayers that [his] ministry will continue fruitful and faithful to our Lord" as a bishop of the Southern Cone.

"We commend you for your courage in leaving the Episcopal Church," the Rt. Rev. Marcelino Rivera, bishop of Northern Mexico, and the Rev. Juan Gabriel Hernandez, secretary of the diocesan synod, wrote Bishop Iker.

The full letter may be viewed here.
