Anglican churches partner to support Vicar of Baghdad

Two Anglican churches in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, Christ Church Plano and All Saints Dallas, recently partnered in hosting the Rev. Canon Dr. Andrew White, Vicar of Baghdad, at their churches, raising more than $200,000 for Canon White’s ongoing missionary efforts in Iraq. “The wonderful links we have in the Anglican world brought us all together and gave the people of our two churches a common purpose: to uphold and support a vital ministry,” said the Very Rev. Canon David H. Roseberry, rector of Christ Church Plano.

Canon White is the Vicar of St. George’s Church, just outside the Green Zone, in Baghdad, Iraq. This congregation is the only remaining Anglican church in the country. He is also the President of the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East, which promotes peaceful relations and mutual respect amongst religious groups and their members, as well as provides humanitarian aid and assistance to persons and communities in need.

    This is a wonderful development. It is good to see Canon White – who is Archbishop Welby’s long time friend and mentor in the ongoing work of reconciliation – offered the right hand of fellowship among Anglican Churches in the USA.

    Andrew worked behind the scenes in helping us rebuild trust and friendship with Bishop Johnston. He is the real deal and will be a great teacher and model within the ACNA.
