Changing Leadership, Changeless Faith




On the morning of July 21, 2021, the 53rd Annual Synod of the Diocese of the Eastern United States (DEUS) convened in Atlanta, Georgia, the Most Rev’d Walter H. Grundorf, D.D., presiding. This synod was significant due to Bishop Grundorf’s retirement, which would take effect at the close of the synod. Bishop Grundorf became Ordinary of the Diocese in 1995 and has served with distinction for all these years as Chief Pastor of the Diocese. Bishop Grundorf has also served as Presiding Bishop of the Anglican Province of America since its erection in 1998.

On the evening of July 22, 2021, the clergy and laity of the Anglican Province of America (APA) gathered at St. Barnabas Cathedral in Dunwoody, Georgia for the Installation and Enthronement of the Most Rev’d Chandler H. Jones, SSC, as the new Bishop Ordinary of the DEUS. Bishop Grundorf was the Chief Institutor, assisted by Co-institutors, Archdeacons Mark Menees and Michael Ward.

On Friday morning, July 23, 2021, the 10th Synod of the APA ratified the House of Bishops’ election of Bishop Jones as Presiding Bishop. Bishop Jones was installed as Presiding Bishop at the closing Eucharist of the APA Synod that same morning.
