Anglican Laity Push for New North American Province

Remain Faithful, one of the Anglican Communion’s largest lay-led organizations proclaiming the traditional, orthodox Faith as set forth in Holy Scripture and in the historic Creeds, believes that alignment with a remote Anglican Province does not offer a permanent solution for traditional, orthodox Anglicans in North America.

BE IT RESOLVED, that Remain Faithful calls for and supports the immediate establishment of a new North American Anglican Province, in conjunction with Common Cause Partners and comprised of Dioceses constitutionally and canonically bound to preach, teach and practice the true orthodox and traditional Faith proclaimed in Holy Scripture and in the historic Creeds of the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that Remain Faithful calls for the recognition of the above-described North American Anglican Province by thosePrimates in attendance at the Global Anglican Futures Conference, as well as by the Archbishop of Canterbury, and by all other bishops, priests andLaypersons in communion with the Worldwide Anglican Communion.

RESOLVED this 26th day of September, 2008, by unanimous vote of the Executive Committee of Remain Faithful, at Fort Worth, Texas.

Cora S. Werley, Secretary
