Quebec’s Angli­cans gather to dis­cuss change for the fu­ture, to con­sider same-sex bless­ings, and cel­e­brate the or­di­na­tion of four new priests

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Quebec

Synod will con­clude on Sun­day morn­ing with a cel­e­bra­tion at the Cathe­dral of the Holy Trin­ity in Quebec City, which will in­clude the or­di­na­tion of four new priests who rep­re­sent some of the Angli­can church’s diver­sity. Two of those to be or­dained as priests are women, two are still in their 20s, and one is gay.

Mem­bers of the me­dia are wel­come to at­tend the ser­vice of or­di­na­tion on Sun­day, Novem­ber 4, at 11:00 a.m. at the Cathe­dral of the Holy Trin­ity (31 rue des Jardins in Quebec City). Bishop Drainville will be avail­able for in­ter­views fol­low­ing the ser­vice, which is expected to last ap­prox­i­mately 90 min­utes.

Es­tab­lished in 1793, the Angli­can Dio­cese of Quebec con­sists of about 3,000 mem­bers wor­ship­ping in nearly 80 con­gre­ga­tions over an area of ap­prox­i­mately 720,000 square kilo­me­tres. It is one of 29 dio­ce­ses of the Angli­can Church of Canada, which is a mem­ber church of the world­wide Angli­can Com­mu­nion. The dioce­san bishop, cathe­dral, and ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fices re­side in Quebec City.
