Latest News from the Anglican Church
Earlier this month representatives from Colombia and Venezuela came together for the First General Synod of the Diocese of New Granada since its reception into the ACC.
The business sessions, which took place on August 14th and 15th, were largely devoted to ratification of diocesan canons. These, however, were preceded by a clergy retreat, led by Father Gilberto Jaramillo Mejía, a Benedictine monk from Abbey of Our Lady of the Assumption in Medellín.
Father Gilberto's presence the diocesan retreat is emblematic of the friendly relations that have developed in Colombia over the past few years between the Roman Catholic Church and the ACC.
The synod itself was marked by the reception of a number of clergy from Brazil, including Dom Rogerio Campos and the monks of the Benedictine Monastery of San Rafael, Goiania. Though the ACC has experienced significant growth in other areas of South America, this marks its first expansion into the Lusophone world.
The church in Venezuela also received a boost when Bishop Orrego Hurtado appointed Father Adrián Enrique the Archpriest for Caracas. Father Enrique runs two missions in the city and is actively involved in outreach to youth.
