OUR PARTNER IN MINISTRY,
THE CATHEDRAL OF THE HOLY SPIRIT,
GETS A NEW HOME!
On May 24, A.D. 2015, The Feast of Pentecost, following a night in which the area was visited by tongues of fire [and torrential rains], Archbishop John McClellan Marshall, dedicated the new space for The Anglican Cathedral of The Holy Spirit in Carrollton, Texas.
He was assisted by The Reverend Gerald W. Krumenacker, Jr., newly appointed Vicar of The Cathedral.
In attendance were the clergy of the Diocese and parishioners and guests from around the North Texas area.
During the renovation of the space, the Diocese received substantial donations from individuals and corporations that have enriched the worship experience for the congregation. The new space was acquired through the diligence of The Reverend Dr. Alan L. Black, Rector of St. Athanasius Anglican Church, Carrollton.
Much of the renovation was accomplished through the efforts of Mr. and Mrs. Stephen W. Apple, Sr., and Jamie Marshall, wife of the Archbishop. The Diocese is truly thankful to have this opportunity to move forward in ministry.

VISIT OF THE ARCHBISHOP TO THE PATRIARCH
On December 16, 2013, The Most Reverend John McClellan Marshall, Anglican Bishop of Texas II and Metropolitan Archbishop of the Southern Province of The Catholic Charismatic Church [Old Catholic Succession] traveled to Connecticut for a visit with Patriarch Augustine of the CCC.
The meeting was brief, but productive, and included The Most Reverend Martin E. Boyle, Bishop of the Diocese of St. Matthias [CCC]. Despite being in a wheelchair, the Patriarch maintains a full schedule, so the Archbishop was fortunate to be able to visit on this occasion.
