MANCHESTER, September 20, 2007 – Two Archbishops are to speak at Manchester Cathedral, calling for the Church of England to be inclusive.
The Archbishop of Mexico and the leader of the Scottish Episcopal Church are taking part in a conference Celebrating Anglican Diversity, which will celebrate the long tradition of a diverse Church that welcomes all people. It is being held on September 29.
Most Rev. Carlos Touche-Porter, Archbishop Mexico, has longstanding experience of inclusion and diversity issues within the Church, including the place of gay and lesbian Christians.
He is part of an emerging network of Anglican Bishops based mainly in Latin America (“the Global Centre”) aiming to celebrate the unity and diversity of the Communion.
“Inclusion is a reality in the Anglican Church, despite reports to the contrary,” Archbishop Carlos said:
“I am very much looking forward to being in the UK as part of our preparations for a positive Lambeth Conference.”
