Our History

In 1977 an internationalcongress of nearly 2,000 Anglican bishops, clergy and lay people met inSt. Louis, Missouri, to take the actions necessary to establish anorthodox jurisdiction in which traditional Anglicanism would bemaintained, by returning to the fullness of the Faith of the undivided universal Church. Acting according to the principles determined by theseven great Ecumenical Councils of the ancient Church and adoptinginitially the name "Anglican Church of North America," they placedthemselves under the jurisdiction of the retired Episcopal bishop ofSpringfield, Illinois, the Right Reverend Albert Chambers.
