Hong Kong archbishop elected to chair Anglican Consultative Council

From ENS-

The Anglican Consultative Council April 15 elected Hong Kong Archbishop Paul Kwong to be its next chair.

Kwong, the second and current archbishop and primate of Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui, said at a brief news conference after his election, that he was “deeply honored and humbled” to be elected. He called the job a “huge responsibility to serve the ACC and the communion, together with the delegates” and also with the Instruments of Communion.

“The most important issue is to hold the communion together,” Kwong said, adding that people with different opinions on the issues facing the communion must find ways to come together for what he called the communion’s objective of existence, which is for mission.

“We have to make the communion be relevant to the world, to the people that we are called by God to serve,” he said.
