ACNA’s March Conclave

Anglican Unscripted filled in the details on the forthcoming ACNA conclave. George Conger reports here that the conclave will happen after the March 12th consecration of Chip Edgar as bishop.

  • The conclave is scheduled to take place at the St. Christopher Camp and Conference Center on Seabrook Island.
  • Archbishop Beach wants 90 percent of the bishops there or the conclave is off.
  • The purpose of the conclave is to get rid of misconceptions and grievances and have people talk to each other rather than through others online. It is not a meeting “to slam C4SO.”

Calling this a conclave probably means it will follow the rules of the conclave that elected Archbishop Beach in 2014, which you can read about here. That included a vow of silence probably based on Roman Catholic practice, which means you probably won’t see press releases that say much beyond vague phrases.

UPDATE: The conclave had been delayed according to Conger and Kallsen. No word yet on a future date.
