The Rt. Rev. Kevin Bond Allen will be installed as first bishop of the Diocese of Cascadia—on Sept 30, 2011 in Seattle, Washington. Archbishop Robert Duncan announcedthe date of his consecration on Aug 20 along with the date of two other consecrations for the ACNA.
The diocese of Cascadia was organized by the ACNA in 2008 and began with 8 congregations in the Pacific Northwest of the United States in Western Washington including two former Episcopal congregations that had been under the oversight of the Diocese of Recife. At its June 25, 2011 meeting of Synod, the vicar general of the Diocese, the Rt. Rev. Richard Boyce of the Reformed Episcopal Church announced the diocese had grown to 11 congregations with a further congregation in formation.
The synod also elected, by a unanimous vote, the Rev. Kevin Bond Allen, rector of St Brendan’s Anglican Church, as its first bishop.
