Gulick: TEC Bishop Without Clergy

"He (Gulick) is not the bishop of The Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth," Fr. Culpepper told VOL during the Inaugural Provincial Assembly for the Anglican Church in North America which was being held in Bedford during the same time that he received the bishop's letter. "He is slightly confused. He is the Episcopal Bishop of Kentucky. He has no jurisdiction over me."

Communications Director of the North Texas Diocese, Katie Sherrod confirmed that in all, about 70 active priests and deacons received the same letter. Apparently, it was the second in at least a series of three letters that Gulick intends on issuing in his attempt to bring the clergy in the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth under the authority of the North Texas Episcopal diocese.
