Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
During the past three years, the presiding bishops of The Anglican Catholic Church, The Anglican Church in America, The Anglican Province of America and The Diocese of the Holy Cross, along with the clergy and people of their jurisdictions, have formed close bonds of friendship and cooperation. We anticipate the day when we establish stronger bonds of union and are working diligently and sensitively toward that end. We believe that God looks with favor upon our efforts and we seek always to discern His will as we move toward organic union.
While there is much work yet to be done, we are taking whatever cooperative steps are most readily available to us. The creation of this directory is one such step. The directory contains a listing of all classical Anglican parishes within our separate jurisdictions. The faithful clergy who labor for Christ within these churches may be depended upon to preach the word of God and provide a Sacramental ministry that is faithfully Anglican and thoroughly orthodox.
We commend this directory to you and pray that you will find spiritual sustenance when visiting these congregations.
Your Brothers in Christ,
The Most Rev. Walter H. Grundorf
