From the Secretary General of the Anglican Communion
'In response to a number of queries, and following consultation with The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Secretary General of the Anglican Communion has issued the following statement:
"The Convocation of Anglicans in North America (CANA) is, to my knowledge, a "mission" of the Church of Nigeria. It is not a branch of the Anglican Communion as such but an organsation which relates to a single province of the Anglican Communion. CANA has not petitioned the Anglican Consultative Council for any official status within the Communion's structures, nor has the Archbishop of Canterbury indicated any support for its establishment." '
The Revd Canon Kenneth Kearon
See Jim Naughton's comment on Daily Episcopalian. He wonders out loud if Bishop Minns, a Bishop of the Church of Nigeria, and the churches that have connected themselves to CANA are actually a part of the Anglican Communion.
