St James - The Cathedral in Fresno
claims to be a member of the Anglican Communion. Of course if one goes to the Anglican Communion website the only diocese listed in ANY province is that of the Episcopal Diocese of San Joaquin and it lists +Jerry Lamb as interim bishop.
Hey, that is okay because there is one website listing on the St. James Cathedral site that when you click on it takes you directly to --- you guessed it -+Jerry Lamb and the Episcopal Diocese of San Joaquin. All I can say is WOWSERS!
Not all parishes have a regular website. Some parishes have none and others that have websites the link is "broken".
St. Mary's in Fresno has at least 12 links directly to Episcopal websites including TEC. It also has one that claims that Mr. Schofield's website is Episcopal.
St. Mary's in Manteca has a link to the Anglican Communion website. Yet when you go there the only diocese listed is that of Bishop Lamb. If you go to the website of the Southern Cone there is absolutely no listing of the Mr. Schofield website or any of Mr. Schofield's parishes.
St. Mark's in Tracy has the same Anglican website link.
St. Paul's in Bakersfield has a link to the Archbishop of Canterbury of all things! There own last convention adopts the Jerusalem Declaration stating that the Archbishop is superfluous and yet bold as brass there is a link! Also has a link to the 1928 prayerbook (isn't that still Episcopal?) and the Anglican Communion website.
St. John the Evangelist in Stockton has a link not only to the Anglican Communion website but also to -- you guessed it -- The Episcopal Church website. Yep, ++Schori's website!
Christ Church in Oakhurst has a direct link to it's diocesan website - yep, Bishop Lamb's website!
Church of Good Shepherd has a link to the ++Rowan Williams but it is broken -- duh?!
St. John's in Porterville has a link to the Anglican Communion and Canterbury. See the Jerusalem Declaration for that one.
St. Paul's Visalia has a link to the Anglican Communion and the Church of England (?!) as well as the 1928 Book of Common Prayer.
And finally St. Peters on it's website still lists the parish as Episcopal (Anglican).
There you have it folks. A group going in multiple directions in one big hurry. But I do really like the link from the Cathedral of St James, home church of Mr. John David Mercer Schofield with a diocesan link to +Bishop Jerry Lamb and the Episcopal Diocese of San Joaquin. It is always nice to cover all your basis.
