Keeping track

So the parishes that have asked to be received into the Southern Cone are:

*St John's, Shaughnessy, Vancouver
*St George's, Lowville, ON (shocking!)
*St Hilda's, Oakville
*St Chad's, Toronto
*St Matthew's, Abbotsford, BC
*St Mary of the Incarnation, Victoria
*St Alban's, Ottawa

Good Shepherd, St Catharines, votes on the 24th, as does St Matthias and St Luke in Vancouver. The Church of the Good Shepherd in Vancouver is also expected to vote by the end of the month.

Three BC parishes (Holy Cross, Abbotsford; Resurrection, Hope; St John's, Richmond) were not ACoC parishes in the first place.

Interesting that, in contrast with San Joaquin, the SoCo doesn't seem to have the same allure for Anglo-Catholics in Canada (apart from Bishop Harvey himself). I would be very interested to see if, for example, St John the Evangelist, Calgary, splits.

Few people comment on this issue here and elsewhere as I suspect many of us are bored to death with the narrow minded people who can think only of what some people do in bed while violence, hatred and poverty are killing people worldwide.
