New Bishop in the Diocese of the Holy Trinity, Western USA

On Saturday 26th October 2013, the Most Revd Mark Haverland consecrated The Revd Canon Stephen C. Scarlett as Bishop Ordinary of the Diocese of the Holy Trinity, thus filling a vacancy in the See which had existed for some 16 years. Archbishop Haverland was assisted in the Consecration, which took place in St Matthews Church, Newport Beach, California, by The Right Revd Wilson Garang (ACC Diocese of Aweil, South Sudan) and The Right Revd Solomzi Mentjies (ACC Diocese of the Eastern Cape, Southern Africa). Other ACC Bishops, including our own Bishop Damien, who had stayed on after the Provincial Synod, also joined in the laying on of hands upon the new bishop. A splendid reception followed.
