Three Bishops consecrated for American dioceses
BY GRACE MUGABE
The Episcopal Church of Rwanda has elected three new Bishops to serve in one of the provinces of the Anglican Church in North America.
The election took place on Saturday 13 at the Anglican Diocese of Kigali.
The Bishops who were elected are: The Rev. DR. Todd Hunter, The Rev. Canon Doc Loomis and Rev. Silas TAK Yin Ng.
According to the communiqué the first two bishops will serve in US while one Silas TAK Yin Ng will serve in Canada.
The province of the Anglican Church of Rwanda has increased the number of bishops in the Anglican Mission in the Americas (AMIA) from seven to ten.
The Anglican Mission in the Americas was formed on July, 28, 2000 after this segment broke away from the Episcopal Church of America (ECUSA).
The world fellowship has been in an uproar since the liberal-leaning U.S. Episcopal Church, which is the Anglican body in the U.S.A, consecrated its first openly gay bishop, V. Gene.Robinson of New Hampshire.
As a result, Rwandan bishops oversee some Anglican dioceses in North America.
On his part, the Primate of the Church of Rwanda, Archbishop Emmanuel Kolini vowed that Rwanda will continue spreading a message of hope in an attempt to save mankind from falling into satanic pit.
In his message to the Press, Bishop Charles Murphy, the Chairman of AMIA and the Primatial Vicar from America lauded Rwanda for what it has done for his province.
“Rwanda is a beacon of hope. It has saved Americans from a state of quagmire,” said, Murphy, and added: “Our churches in America are canonically based in Rwanda; shall therefore remain a missionary out reach of Rwanda in America.”
