Diocese splits with Episcopal Church

Jordan Robertson of the Associated Press in today's Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that the Dioceses of San Joaquin voted at its annual convention to leave the Episcopal Church USA to join the Anglican Province of the Southern Cone. Mr. Robertson sums up the issue as a "debate over the Bible and homosexuality".

In passing, I noticed this difference in scale.
The diocese serves about 8,500 parishioners in 47 congregations in central California.

That's fewer people than are on the books at St. Al's.
