Below are letters confirming our Anglican Jurisdiction and Identity from other Dioceses in the United States and beyond.
The Rt. Reverend Jack Leo Iker
Bishop of Fort Worth
The Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth
February 25, 2011 – Thank you so very much for your letter of February 11 and for the kind invitation to visit your parish on November 6. Unfortunately that is the weekend of our Diocesan Convention, so I must decline. Perhaps something could be worked out at another time.
We are grateful for your interest in the Diocese of Fort Worth. Please do continue to uphold us in prayer as we seek to move on to the Court of Appeals. Our attorneys have much more confidence in that forum that in the district court here in Fort Worth, but both sides agree that this whole matter will end up before the Texas Supreme Court in due time.
I am grateful for your friendship and commend you on your faithfulness under trying circumstances for orthodox Anglicans. Best wishes, and God bless you!
The Rt. Rev. Paul C. Hewett, SSC
Diocese of the Holy Cross
October 9, 2009 – Dear Father Jim, thank you so much for your kind and generous honorarium. It was a joy to be with you all – the “epicentre of Anglo-Catholocism in greater Boston.” Your persistence in hosting not one, or two, but three Festivals of Faith over the years is admirable. Our people in the region are becoming more aware that much of the “kingdom thinking” around Boston takes place in Brockton!
I regard you all with affection in Christ as ministry partners, fully in harness with one another. But if you and St. Paul’s were to decide to formally and canonically join the Diocese of the Holy Cross, you would find an appreciative and welcoming family, fully engaged in the great realignment. IF any of you want to attend our Synod this April 29 to May 1 in Columbia, SC, you are most welcome.
To provide you and yours with a summary of how we see our vocation as a Diocese, I am enclosing a Synod Address from 2007. You can count on our prayers here for you, as you “press on the Kingdom” and lift high the Cross of our Saviour.”
The Rt. Rev. John H. Rodgers Jr.
Missionary Bishop of S.E. Asia
The Province of the Anglican Church in S. East Asia
August 4, 2000 – Dear Father Hiles and Fellow Christians of the Anglican Parish of St. Paul, it is my great privilege to write to you to say that I have met with Archbishop Emmanuel Kolini and he has assured me that you are formally members of the Province of Rwanda and under my Episcopal care and oversight on his behalf until such time as we become a recognized Province in North America or until Bishop Edward MacBurney, who has already been an Episcopal Visitor to you, might be in a place to formally take you under his care.
I am looking forward to my visit with you later this year on November the 5th. I am honored to be invited. Rest assured that your Faith is known across the World and that we and many give thanks to the Lord for you.
