Archbishop of Mexico becomes Patron of InclusiveChurch

InclusiveChurch is pleased to announce that the Archbishop of Mexico, the Most Revd Carlos Touche-Porter, has agreed to be Patron of InclusiveChurch.

The Archbishop said "As an Anglican committed to promote inclusiveness and diversity in our Church, I rejoice, celebrate and support the ministry of Inclusive Church. May the Anglican Communion continue to be a house of prayer for all people, where everyone is welcome, valued and respected." He is Presiding Bishop of La Iglesia Anglicana de Mexico and a Primate of the Anglican Communion.

Archbishop Carlos preached at a service hosted by Affirming Catholicism in Westminster Abbey on Monday, 26th February. His sermon can be found at http://affirmingcatholicism.org.uk/pages/default.asp?id=7&sID=63.

The Revd Dr Giles Fraser said "Archbishop Carlos represents traditional Anglicanism of a sort that is familiar to ordinary members of the Church of England. His approach stands in marked contrast to the dangerous distortion that is occurring in other parts of our communion. We are delighted to have him as our Patron."

A seminar on "Anglican Inclusion -- A Global Tradition” is being organised by IC to take place in the summer. Further details will follow.
