The orthodox Anglican
Diocese of Recife has declared itself in a state of emergency
and has called on the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Primates
of the Anglican Communion to provide alternative adequate episcopal
supervision from another Primate.
A letter was sent out
from the diocese's recent convention by Bishop Robinson Cavilcanti
and the Venerable Mauricio R. F. Coelho, Chairman of the Standing
Committee requesting urgent action as they are under siege from
the Primate of Brazil Dom. Orlando Santos Oliveira.
