Global South Welcomes Diocese of South Carolina PDF Print E-mail
August 21, 2014

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus

As you will recall the 223rd Diocesan Convention of the Diocese of South Carolina meeting at Christ Church in Mt. Pleasant on March 14-15, 2014 unanimously accepted the offer of the Global South Primates Steering Committee for Provisional Primatial Oversight. 

Now this morning we receive with gratitude this letter from the Global South Primatial Steering Committee.  It is their acceptance of our request for this gracious relationship.  I trust you will be heartened as I have been by their welcome of us “… as an active and faithful member within the Global South of the Anglican Communion, until such time as a permanent primatial affiliation can be found.”  It is my joy to share it with you.

Faithfully yours in Christ,

Mark Lawrence signature

The Right Reverend Mark Joseph Lawrence
