From the Episcopal Church in South Carolina:
“Bishop Skip Adams has appointed the Rev. William Coyne as the new Missioner for Returning Congregations for The Episcopal Church in South Carolina, a new diocesan staff position created to assist parishes and missions that are returning to The Episcopal Church.
“This new ministry is a way for our diocese to manifest good care of God?s people, live out our Diocesan Vision,and always seek the goals of reconciliation and unity in Christ during this important time of transition,” Bishop Adams said.
“As Missioner, Fr. Coyne will report directly to the Bishop, while developing teams and support systems around the diocese for the successful return of churches to The Episcopal Church in South Carolina (TECSC), which is the diocese of The Episcopal Church in eastern South Carolina.
This appointment follows on the Supreme Court’s declining to grant a certiorari to the breakaway diocese in the ongoing litigation surrounding church properties (the Cafe’s prior coverage may be found here).
