Dear MDAS Family,
The Missionary Diocese of All Saints congratulates The Rt. Rev. Dr. Foley Beach on his election as the second Archbishop of the Anglican Church in North America. The Archbishop-Elect upholds the orthodox position on Holy Orders. He believes the Christian ministerial episcopate and presbyterate are reserved to males.
Archbishop-Elect Beach embraces the Anglican catholic tradition within the ACNA and is supportive of upholding catholic faith and order of the undivided church.
We, your bishops, look forward to working with our new Archbishop as the ACNA and our MDAS seek to evangelize North America for Christ and His Church and he looks forward to working with us.
Yours in Christ,
Bishop Ilgenfritz and Bishop Lipka
