In 2012 the majority of parishes in the Diocese of South Carolina, including the Cathedral, elected to disassociate from the Episcopal Church for reasons related to differences in theology and polity. After several years of discernment while under provisional oversight from the Global South Primates Steering Committee, it is now time for our diocese to vote at our convention in March about our permanent provincial affiliation. In all likelihood, we will vote overwhelmingly to affiliate with the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA). Aware that there might be some in our congregation who would like to learn more and have questions answered about what all this means and how this will effect our common life in the Diocese of South Carolina and at the Cathedral, we will hold an ACNA Affiliation Forum in advance of Diocesan Convention on Monday evening, January 30th at 7:00pm in Wellbrock Hall. In the meantime, please feel free to contact Dean Dickinson at the church office with any questions you might have.
