Diocese of Niagara: Potemkin St. Hilda’s

Filed under: Diocese of Niagara — David Jenkins @ 3:58 pm

At the primates’ meeting in Egypt, the newly formed ACNA was warned not to recruit members from – presumably – the TEC or ACoC.

Any scheme developed would rely on an undertaking from the present partners to ACNA that they would not seek to recruit and expand their membership by means of proselytisation.

If only the ACoC would obey the spirit of this and not recruit members from one parish to populate another.

There are numerous ACoC churches in Oakville that are close to St. Hilda’s ANiC. The church of the Epiphany is one. St. Hilda’s ANiC has friends everywhere. One of them informed us today that an announcement was made at Epiphany that the diocesan services being held in St. Hilda’s building have something missing: people. Members of Epiphany are being encouraged to show up at St. Hilda’s to maintain the illusion that the diocese has a congregation there. This is in addition to the 3 people that Cheryl Fricker drags with her from St. Aidan’s.

After all, another court appearance is imminent.
