Anglican Diocese of Cascadia Forms

In a historic decision this week signaling a unified faith among Anglican believers in the Pacific Northwest, seven Anglican congregations in Western Washington have come together to form The Diocese of Cascadia. The first Anglican diocese - the Diocese of the Southeast - was formed recently with 73 Anglican clergy and wardens in Jacksonville, Florida, under vicar general the Rev. Neil Lebhar.
