Becoming bishop: New Anglican church consecrates Steve Wood
Add “The Right” to his title, for no longer is Steve Wood a mere Reverend.
The rector of St. Andrew's Church in Mount Pleasant became bishop on Saturday, consecrated to lead the newly formed Diocese of the Carolinas, part of the Anglican Church in North America. The diocese oversees parishes in North and South Carolina.
ACNA is an Anglican body established in recent years to accommodate disaffected Episcopalians and others who prefer an orthodox reading of Scripture.
Wood has served as priest of one of the Lowcountry's most dynamic parishes. St. Andrew's left the Episcopal Church and its Diocese of South Carolina two years ago.
