Lent 2024

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

Lenten greetings in the Name of Christ Jesus our Savior and only Lord!!

I am writing to you to ask that you join me in a Season of Prayer as we enter into an important time in the life of the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA). As you may know, my second term as the Archbishop and Primate of the ACNA will end this coming June.  The College of Bishops will meet in Conclave beginning on June 20th at St. Vincent’s Archabbey in Latrobe, Pennsylvania to seek the Lord and select our new Archbishop.  This will be followed by our Provincial Assembly (June 26-28), our ACNA family gathering, at the conclusion of which our new Archbishop will begin his term.

Beginning with the Season of Easter starting March 31st and continuing through Pentecost until June 20th, I am calling on the members of the ACNA to set aside each Wednesday or Friday (or both) to spend time in prayer (and fasting for those who are able), while also adding a petition in each Sunday’s Prayers of the People, for the bishops as we seek the Lord for my successor.  I am asking each member, rector, pastor, bishop, priest, deacon, prayer group, Bible Study, and intercessor in the Province to make this a priority starting Easter Sunday.

We know that God responds to the prayers of his people (Mt.7:7,8, James 5:16, Eph. 3:20, 21, Jer.33:3), and we all desire that the bishops hear from the Lord when we gather in Conclave.  The ACNA and the College of Bishops have made it a point not to have campaigning and political posturing as part of this process. Rather, we will be seeking to hear from the Lord as to whom He has anointed for this next season of the Church.

As the Lord said to the prophet Jeremiah: “Call unto me and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things which you do not know.” (Jer.33:3)

Your brother in Christ,



The Most Reverend Doctor Foley Beach
