Retired Episcopal Bishop Joins Anglican Catholic Church

Episcopal News Service. January 10, 1990 [90011C]

The Rt. Rev. Charles F. Boynton, retired suffragan bishop of New York, has left the Episcopal Church to join the traditionalist Anglican Catholic Church. Boynton, 82, said in a prepared statement, "After the House of Bishops meeting this fall in Philadelphia, it is clear that the Episcopal Synod of America interests continue to be under the mandate of General Convention and the Constitution and Canons of the Episcopal Church, along with its heretical theology, questionable morality, and increasingly secular and liberal approach to just about everything." Bishop Boynton served as bishop of Puerto Rico before becoming suffragan of New York in 1951. He retired in 1969, and in 1978 he formally resigned from the episcopacy of the Episcopal Church.
