“Holding Fast the Faithful Word” Titus 1:9

January 2017

In January Bishop Primus visited Australia to spend time with our members out there. In Melbourne he ordained Brendan Wilson to the diaconate on 14th January, then ordained him presbyter the following day. Brendan is pastoring a small group meeting weekly in his home for Bible study and the Eucharist. Since being ordained Brendan has baptised a young adult who has become a Christian. Bishop Fenwick also chaired the second meeting of the pro-synod of the Reformed Episcopal Church in Australia (the name of the FCE jurisdiction in that country). Primus and Mrs Fenwick then went on to Brisbane where they spent time with our presbyter there, Peter Maher, and his wife. Peter has had a number of setbacks in setting up a congregation, but hopes to make a start this year.
