The priest at a breakaway Anglican church in St. Catharines has reportedly been suspended.
Church of the Good Shepherd Rev. Gerry Brodie was suspended with pay Tuesday afternoon by the Anglican Diocese of Niagara, Church warden Pat Decker told Osprey News Network Wednesday.
She said Archdeacon of Lincoln and Rector Bruce McPetrie had been appointed administrator of the church, which voted Sunday to leave the diocese and align with the more conservative Anglican Network in Canada.
“We, at this moment in time, are conducting business as usual,” Decker said Wednesday afternoon.
“We have not vacated the premises and we have not been asked to do so … at this moment.”
McPetrie and Brodie couldn’t be reached for comment.
