Anglican Communion General Secretary to attend gathering of Canadian and U.S. bishops

The Rev. Canon Kenneth Kearon, General Secretary of the Anglican Communion, will attend part of a joint meeting of Canadian and U.S. bishops in Windsor, Ont., next week.

“In my early days in this post I welcome any opportunity to meet bishops in their own province and context. Your invitation is therefore very welcome,” Canon Kearon wrote to Canadian Primate Archbishop Andrew Hutchison this week.

In his letter inviting Canon Kearon to attend the meeting, Archbishop Hutchison said: “The intention here is simply to provide an opportunity for you to meet and greet the bishops in a relaxed atmosphere and listen to the presentations and discussions that will be centered around Frontier Mission Work in North America.”

Bishops of the Canadian Anglican Church and some of their colleagues from the Episcopal Church in the United States meet once every three years. The Canadian House of Bishops will be meeting next Monday to Wednesday and will be joined by ECUSA bishops for dinner on Wednesday. The joint meeting will conclude with a Eucharist in All Saints parish church in Windsor on Sunday.
