Local Anglicans discuss future

It's a day of decision for members of Jacksonville's St. Andrews Anglican Church.

They vote today on whether to follow their bishop, Richard Boyce, into the Reformed Episcopal Church or to stay with the Anglican Provinces of America.

The Reformed Episcopal Church supports accepting female priests and gay marriage, while the Anglican Provinces of America mandates male-only priests and traditional marriage.

Jacksonville church Rector Creighton Barnes, who predicted the congregation will stay with the traditional values, said church members will discuss the matter, and possibly vote on it, today.
