Edward Harding MacBurney is an American Anglican priest and bishop. He served from 1988 to 1994 as the seventh bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Quincy. In the spring of 2008, he was inhibited from ministry by the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, Katharine Jefferts Schori, over charges of performing Anglican confirmations in an Episcopal diocese without permission of the local bishop.[1] In June 2009, it was announced that Jefferts Schori had accepted MacBurney's renunciations of his vows to the Episcopal Church; he was later transferred as a retired bishop to the Anglican Church in North America.[2]
