When Bishop Charlie Masters was elected as the co-adjutor bishop for the Anglican Network in Canada at their synod in Ottawa this week, the ceremony was witnessed by a local pastor.

Padre Brian Kirby said he and Bishop Masters are good friends, so he jetted out to Ottawa to see Rt. Rev Charles Masters as he got the news that he would succeed Diocesan Bishop and Moderator the Rt. Rev. Donald Harvey when he retires in 2014.

The election took place at St. Peter and St. Paul Anglican Church in Ottawa on Nov. 14 with the Primate of the Anglican Church in North America, the Most Rev. Robert Duncan, presiding.

The House of Bishops of the Anglican Church in North America, of which ANiC is a diocese, must approve the election.
