GAFCON Primates Respond to Pope’s offer

The GAFCON Primates Council has issued a statement in response to Archbishop of Canterbury’s letter, informing them of the Vatican’s offer of ‘Apostolic Constitution’ to Anglicans who may be interested in joining the Roman Catholic Church.

The statement, which was issued on November 10, 2009 and signed by the Primate of Nigeria, Archbishop Peter Akinola, expresses the Fellowship’s deep conviction that this is not the time to leave the Anglican Communion, and reiterates its belief in the future of Anglicanism as bright if its members remain rooted in the Holy Scriptures.

Church of Uganda fully subscribes to the Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans (FCA) and is in full support of the statement that has been issued.
