Please come to the Annual meeting in October to help with decisions for the ACNA
By indicating on your consent to participate form that you would like to be a part of the ACNA
Chapter, someone will contact you to "Welcome" you into our group.
ACNA is composed of clergy and congregations that have left the Anglican Church of Canada and The Episcopal Church over the blessing of same-sex unions by some dioceses in Canada, and the election of bishops in same-sex relationships in the U.
Regarding Beach's participation in the meeting, Hiltz noted that membership in the Anglican Communion is a process over-seen by the ACC, and stressed that Beach's participation does not mean ACNA is a part of the Anglican Communion.
Instead, he described ACNA as "an ecumenical partner.
It's far from clear that ACNA yet manifests these qualities of an ecumenical partner.
ACNA will have 28 dioceses across North America, and one of those dioceses will consist of all of those Anglican churches that belong to the Anglican Network in Canada.
ACNA will hold what it is calling its first "provincial assembly" from June 22 to 25 in Bedford, Texas.
It is only the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC), which met recently in Kingston, Jamaica, that has the authority to declare ACNA a province of the Anglican Communion.
