Let your priests, O LORD God, be clothed with salvation... 2 Chronicles 6:41 (NRSV)
An Anglican Priest
The Anglican Communion is a worldwide association of Christian churches whose common bond is that they are all “in Communion” with the “See of Canterbury” (ie: the Diocese of Canterbury with its Archbishop). This church can trace a continuous history right back to Jesus Christ himself, although it formed a uniquely English character under the political and spiritual leaders of England, culminating in an official break with the Roman Catholic church in the 16th Century.
Anglicans recognize the three universal [or “Catholic”] types of ordained ministry: bishops, priests, and deacons. I am a priest, ordained as such in 1966.
