In their statement, the two diocesan organizations described the primatial vicar proposal as a “reasonable” response to the request for alternate primatial oversight and said they wanted “go on record with the Archbishop of Canterbury” via this resolution as supporting the proposal developed last November as a “way that moves the discussion in a positive direction.”
The proposal was made in response to a request for alternate primatial oversight made last June by seven dioceses following the election of Bishop Jefferts Schori during General Convention. The Diocese of Upper South Carolina is not among the petitioning dioceses.
. . . the proposal was rejected as insufficient by the seven dioceses requesting alternate primatial oversight.
