This news page started at the time of the press launch of the Windsor Report, produced by the Lambeth Commission, which occurred on Monday, 18 October 2004. We started off primarily with commentary specifically on the Windsor Report, but quickly expanded to news from around the world relating to events in the Anglican Communion and the Episcopal Church USA. This page is updated frequently, so check back often to learn about the latest events.
We are now part of the Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic within the Anglican Church in North America, and we are repeating these news items here for your edification and awareness. Most items in this list originally appeared elsewhere and may be found by browsing the Internet for similar items of interest.

Currently, 22 out of the 38 Provinces in the worldwide Anglican Communion consider themselves to be in either broken or impaired communion with the Episcopal Church in the United States of America (ECUSA). There are currently 38 Provinces and 6 Extra-Provincial areas under the Archbishop of Canterbury. This count of those who are out of communion with ECUSA has been reported by The Rev. Canon Dr. Bill Atwood of EKKLESIA and has been passed along to us by David Virtue of VirtueOnline.
You may wish to go to the VirtueOnline web site to see a provincial map of ECUSA showing the believed status of each diocese regarding the consecration of Gene Robinson as of September 2004 and the believed relationship of the dioceses to what was then the Anglican Communion Network. The dioceses that endorsed the network are shown as purple. It is offered to further the understanding of the politics of the situation in terms of their geographical distribution.
