Bishop Michael Pope


Dear Friends in Christ,


It is my sad duty to inform you that Bishop Michael Pope, the Presiding Bishop of the Anglican Catholic Church in Australia, has passed to eternal life.


Bishop Pope was consecrated bishop in Lincoln, England in October, 2013.


He had labored faithfully to restore order and transparency to the Australian Church. He was a faithful man of God and a dedicated member of the College of Bishops. We will miss his wise counsel and his presence among us.


All who knew Bishop Michael will remember his warmth, his enthusiasm and his great good spirits.


Rest eternal grant him, O Lord, and light perpetual shine upon him.


Your Brother in Christ,
