Abp Hiltz: “There will always be a relationship between the Church of Canada and Cuba”

From ACNS-

The Anglican Church of Canada will continue to have some sort of a relationship with the church in Cuba even if – as appears likely – it becomes a diocese of the US-based Episcopal Church (TEC), says Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada.

TEC’s General Convention is expected to vote this July on a resolution to reintegrate the Episcopal Church in Cuba after the Cuban church voted to return to TEC three years ago. The resolution, drafted by a task force on reintegration set up by TEC and composed of members both of the Episcopal and the Cuban church, seems likely to pass, Hiltz said in an interview on Monday (5 March).

“I think all the indicators are that the task force . . . are supporting – and wholeheartedly supporting – the reintegration, and the resolution that they’ve drafted, which has several parts, speaks very clearly of wanting to move ahead with this,” said Hiltz, who attended the Cuban church’s annual synod in February. “Like any resolution, there’s never a guarantee that it’s going to pass; I’m anticipating it will pass.”
