Constitution and Canons of the Southern Cone
SEPTEMBER 26, 2008
The Constitution and Canons of the Anglican Province of the Southern Cone are available as a pdf document that has been prepared by the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth. Because of the emergency and temporary nature of their offer of oversight to Pittsburgh and other dioceses, not all descriptions and provisions will apply.
Generally speaking, the constitution and canons provide a great deal more freedom to dioceses than those of The Episcopal Church. The province makes no claim on the property of its dioceses and gives dioceses responsibility for ensuring “that the forms used in Public Worship and the Administration of the Sacraments be in accordance with Anglican Faith and Order and that nothing be established that is contrary to the Word of God as revealed in the Holy Scriptures.”
