Conclusions of Conclave 2017

On August 4 – 6, 2017 there was the First Conclave of The Anglocatholic Church and the Meeting of The Holy Synod. What were the results? We experienced a unique unity in love relationship between our clergy; we decided to make our Canon Law legal for all over the Anglocatholic Church: two bishops were consecrated by Patriarch Dr. Heigo Ritsbek and assisted by Metropolitan Archbishop Glentis Samuel – these men are Bishop Paul Boardman, Jr. and Bishop Mathew Mount; Canon David Smith was nominated by the Patriarch a Titular Bishop of Antioch of Pisidia; it was decided that the next Holy Synod Meeting will be in late June 2019 in Toronto (Canada), the next Conclave place and time for 2021 was not determined yet; we had great Enthronement Solemn Mass of Patriarch Dr. Heigo Ritsbek; we had wonderful lectures by Bishop David Smith and Metropolitan Archbishop Glentis Samuel and very fruitful and encouraging theological and liturgical discussions; fellowships around meal times etc. Very blessed time together!
