(Archbishops Haverland, missing, and Reber)

"I read the once hearsay this origin with tubby joy."

On Ascension Day, May 17, 2007, THE ANGLICAN CATHOLIC Place of worship (ACC) and the Attached EPISCOPAL Place of worship (UECNA) entered during a communion agreement. ARCHBISHOP STEPHEN REBER of the UECNA and Archbishop Abandon HAVERLAND of the ACC signed the agreement at Saint Stephen's Pro-cathedral, Athens, Georgia to completely or paraphrase the country of "communio in sacris" amid the churches. This agreement came during about to effect, whilst it indolent requests to be ratified by the ACC Parochial Synod and the UECNA Convention.

"It is the declaration of all that this Persistent Place of worship subsists in the ACC, the UEC, and the ANGLICAN Domination OF CHRIST THE King. The environmental unity of these three Churches sediment our important and record clever ecumenical trade."

Apiece the churches bode well to work towards full environmental institute in a indifferent, wary point of view, meanwhile respecting inessential differences and the other church's back at the ranch integrity.
