Prayer Vigil For Canadian House of Bishops

Clergy and laypersons of The Episcopal Church will support the House of Bishops of the Anglican Church of Canada at their Spring Retreat with a prayer vigil on Tuesday, April 17, from 10-12 Noon (EDT). The Canadian House of Bishops is meeting next week at the Mount Carmel Spiritual Centre which overlooks the Niagara Falls, in Niagara Falls, Ontario. On Tuesday they will be led in retreat by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams. The prayer vigil will be in prayerful, respectful support of the Canadian House of Bishops for their retreat and that the Archbishop of Canterbury will soon accept the invitation of our own House of Bishops for a similar meeting. Information regarding the vigil may be obtained from: Earle King, Deputy from Western New York [] or Michael Hartney, former Deputy from Western New York [].

Those of us planning this Prayer Vigil hope that you will join us. If the Archbishop of Canterbury took a five minute walk across the Rainbow Bridge during his lunchbreak at the Retreat he would be in the United States. A visit with the Bishops of The Episcopal Church would have been so easy on this trip!
