Mexico’s ordained Anglican women gather for the first time

Mexico’s ordained Anglican women gather for the first time

The Anglican Communion News Service reports that the ordained women of La Iglesia Anglicana de Mexico met together for the first time as a group recently.

Three quarters of the current women priests and deacons in the Anglican Church of Mexico have held a gathering to celebrate the ministry of ordained women in the Province. It brought together 18 out of the Province’s 25 ordained women for their first such meeting.  It took place in the city of Cuernavaca in the state of Morelos and consisted of prayer, education sessions, fellowship and the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.

Special guests included the Rt. Revd Griselda Delgado, Bishop of Cuba and first female diocesan bishop in Latin America and the Revd Glenda McQueen, Episcopal Church Staff Officer for Latin American and the Caribbean.

The church became an independent Province of the Anglican Communion in 1995. It ordains women as deacons and priests, but not yet as bishops.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
