Chad Jones to Lead Continuing Anglican Diocese

DEUS Synod Recap and Review at Earth and Altar

By Fr. Sean McDermott

Here at Earth & Altar, the DEUS Synod was busy and fruitful.
We had been appointed to give the plenary talks along with all of our usual duties in the services
and meetings.
Fr. Glenn spent the early part of the week on the Board of Examining Chaplains;
Fr. Mark passed his final exams for the priesthood; and I, well, I just drank a lot of good coffee.

This diocesan Synod was especially important because we elected a Bishop Coadjutor.
We only did one vote, a great sign of unity, and Bishop Chad Jones is our first Coadjutor
Bishop ever elected in the APA. Right after the election, we gave our plenary talks as well.
Over the whole week, we all sensed a great spirit of charity--
this was quite a blessing giving the important election.
I am very proud to be part of the APA: DEUS, and I look forward to the future of our province....

Synod 2019

The Synod of the Diocese of the Eastern United States of the Anglican Province of America will gather from Monday 15th July until Friday 19th July 2019 in Orlando, Florida. This year the Synod is sponsored by Saint Alban's Cathedral, Oviedo, Florida. At this impending Synod, we shall experience a very rare and momentous event, the election of a Bishop Coadjutor for the Diocese. A Bishop Coadjutor is literally a Bishop 'Co-Assistant,' one who supports and assists the Bishop Ordinary and shares his Apostolic jurisdiction. A Coadjutor possesses right of succession to the Bishop Ordinary upon the latter's retirement.
Please pray for our imminent Coadjutor election, that this process may be a peaceful and unifying milestone in the life of our Church, and that God the Holy Ghost will, in His grace and mercy, powerfully lead and guide the Diocese in the choice of its future chief shepherd, teacher, and leader.
