New Anglican Churches begun in Atlanta and Rome, Georgia by CEEC

New Anglican Churches begun in Atlanta and Rome, Georgia by CEEC

As events unfold in the life of the Episcopal Church USA, other Anglican and
Episcopal jurisdictions are actively at work to establish new parishes where
the orthodox faithful can find a home. In recent weeks, two new Anglican
churches have been established in Atlanta and Rome that are receiving Episcopal
oversight from the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches.

The CEEC seeks to blend the liturgical, evangelical, and spirit-filled
aspects of the Holy Church.

All Saints Anglican Church in Rome, Georgia, is a missions outreach of
the Archdiocese of the Holy Trinity, Province of Christ the Good
Shepherd. The Most Reverend Max Broussard, Archbishop, has appointed
the Very Reverend Mark Camp as Vicar of the mission. All Saints is now
meeting at Chapel Hill United Methodist Church in Rome and has been
warmly received there. The web site for All Saints is
www.allsaintsac.org.

Church of the Trinity in Acworth, Georgia (Cobb County) was formed by a
group of families who left the Episcopal Church USA over the recent
issue of the consecration of Gene Robinson as Bishop of New
Hampshire. While the parish has not yet formally affiliated with any
jurisdiction, it is also receiving Episcopal oversight from the Province of
Christ the Good Shepherd. Rev. Camp is now serving as Priest there as well.
The web site for Church of the Trinity is www.churchofthetrinity.net.

"Both churches are growing as word spreads of our existence," said Rev.
Camp. "We intend to be churches where the faithful can hear the Word of God
expounded and taught in depth without compromise, where the ancient Creeds of
the Church are adhered to, and where Anglican orthodoxy is maintained. We
have an emphasis on community and building one another up in the faith. We hope
to establish more parishes in the surrounding area."

The Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches is a member of the new
Anglican Federation. Rev. Camp is also the Abbot General of the Company of
Jesus, a Franciscan and Benedictine third order religious
community. The COJ is an affiliate ministry of the American Anglican
Council.

For more information, please contact Rev. Camp at 678-794-7826 or email
him at frmark@companyofjesus.net. END
