Pastoral Visitors Briefing Seminar

Monday 2nd March 2009

Following the Report of the Windsor Continuation Group to the Archbishop of Canterbury (which was published at the Primates Meeting in Alexandria, Egypt, in February 2009) the initial group of Pastoral Visitors called for by the Windsor Continuation Group in their Report and commended by the Primates Meeting in their Communiqué (para 15) met for a briefing session at Virginia Theological Seminary from 25-28 February.

Those appointed by the Archbishop of Canterbury to the Pastoral Visitors team are: the Rt Rev'd Santosh Marray, the Rt Rev'd Colin Bennetts, the Rt Rev'd Simon Chiwanga, Maj Gen (ret'd) Tim Cross, Canon Dr Chad Gandiya, who all participated in the briefing seminar, and the Very Rev'd Justin Welby, who was unable to attend.

The meeting was facilitated by the Rt Rev'd Peter Price, Bishop of Bath and Wells, England, and received briefings from the Rev'd Dr Ephraim Radner (Wycliffe Theological Seminary, Toronto)  the Rt Rev'd Gary Lillibridge (Bishop of West Texas, TEC and member of the Windsor Continuation Group), The Rev'd Canon Dr Chuck Robertson (Canon to the Presiding Bishop, The Episcopal Church), the Rt Rev'd Herbert Donovan (Deputy to the Presiding Bishop for Anglican Communion Relations, TEC) and the Ven Paul Fehely (Principal Secretary to the Primate, the Anglican Church of Canada) and members of the Faculty at VTS.

The Pastoral Visitors team will now report to the Archbishop of Canterbury.
