Archbishop Venables Memo to Bishop Schofield

March 12, 2008
The Rt. Rev. John David Schofield
4159 East Dakota Avenue
Fresno , CA , 93726 , USA

Dear Bishop John David,

Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. God has called us to faithfully represent Christ in a difficult time in history. To bear faithful witness to Christ, however costly for us, is less of a price than that which must be paid by those who deny His saving grace.
We are deeply honored to have you as Bishop and your Diocese as full members of the Southern Cone. We will continue to proclaim the Gospel together as brother bishops. May God richly bless you and give you peace.

Yours in Christ,


The Most Rev. Gregory J. Venables
Primate of the Southern Cone

    A gospel voice of affirmation and encouragement to a true shepherd from a true shepherd: God bless this primate and JDS, a good and godly bishop!

  2. Cennydd says:

    This should give pause to those who say that our diocese isn’t a part of the Province of the Southern Cone. What more proof could they want?
