The Most Rev. Shane Janzen was sworn in as primate of the worldwide Traditional Anglican Communion Sunday at St. Katherine’s Cathedral Church in Lincoln, U.K.

The Saanich resident is also rector of the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Evangelist (990 Falmouth Rd. in Saanich).

The 57-year old is a former high school teacher as well as a constitutional scholar and advisor, and has held senior positions within the provincial government.

“I am very honoured and humbled by the trust my brother bishops have placed in me as the new primate of the Traditional Anglican Communion,” said Janzen. “I pray God’s grace and guidance for me and for all in the TAC.”

The Traditional Anglican Communion is an international communion of Anglican churches independent from the Canterbury Communion with parishes in Africa, Australia, the Torres Strait, Canada, Central and South America, England, Ireland, India, Scotland, and the United States.  Begun in 1977 and formally established in 1990 here in Victoria, the TAC is a Christ-centred, Biblically faithful church rooted in the traditional Anglican expression of the Christian faith and the historic Book of Common Prayer.
