The Ascendancy of the Anglican Church in North America

Anglican Archbishop Robert Duncan 
meets with Pope Benedict XVI

Archbishop Duncan and the head of GAFCON met privately with Pope Benedict, but the outcome of that conversation has yet to be made public.

The Anglican Church in North America has achieved wide recognition in church circles. Archbishop Robert Duncan recently preached at the enthronement of Uganda’s new Anglican primate, the Most Rev. Stanley Ntagali.

The second Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON) has been set for October 2013 in Athens and The Anglican Church in North American will be well represented.

Archbishop Fred Hiltz and Presiding Bishop Jefferts Schori are petrified that the new Archbishop of Canterbury will recognize Archbishop Bob Duncan and the Anglican Church in North America as an emerging Anglican province. Hiltz and Schori insist that their jurisdictions are the only legitimate expressions of Anglicanism in North America, yet neither has been granted a private meeting with Pope Benedict.
