"Notability"[edit]

Why has no one removed what I assume is a vexatious notablity flag on this article? I notice that other religion-themed pages have also received this treatment in April 2007 Roman Catholicism in Benin, Baptist Union of Poland, Assemblies of God in New Zealand, Church of Christ in Thailand, etc. Could someone more senior than myself do the honours and delete the tag on this article?

It's done. john k 20:30, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

Uniform format proposal[edit]

A proposal is being floated at the project page that there be a standard format for organising each article about national provinces of the Anglican Communion, including this one. Please consider participating in the straw vote and discussion. Cheers! Fishhead64 21:49, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

Talk:Personal Ordinariate[edit]

Apart from the Traditional Anglican Communion, the article should really consider verifying whether groups within the Episcopal Church of the Sudan have ever sought a similar canonical structure to the proposed personal ordinariates. ADM (talk) 18:08, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

Naming[edit]

I was undecided to how the Episcopal Church of Sudan should be named. Their official website gives the name as Episcopal Church of Sudan, while the Anglican Communion official website names it as Episcopal Church of the Sudan. I think both forms are in fact correct but I decided to follow the naming of their official website.Mistico (talk) 22:11, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

They have not cut ties to the Episcopal Church USA[edit]

I am a member of the Episcopal Diocese of Iowa, which has recently became a Companion Diocese to Nzara. Nzara isn't the only diocese to become a companion to other Episcopal church USA diocese, so I don't think this section is true and should be reevaluated and removed if it's not true. Both references in this section are from statements by the ACNA, which has split from the Episcopal church USA, but this hasn't been confirmed by sources in the Episcopal church of the Sudan.nst101 (talk) 00:45, 03 November 2013 (UTC)

In fact they didn't, at least totally. I am rewritting that part. Archbishop Daniel Deng Bul wrote in a letter from 15 December 2013 that: "“We are not happy” with the Episcopal Church’s “acts of continuing ordaining homosexuals and lesbians as priests and bishops as well as blessing same sex relations in the church by some dioceses in TEC; it has pushed itself away from God’s Word and from Anglican Communion. TEC is not concerned for the unity of the Communion.” It was decided at the same time: "As such, the ECS had no choice but to recognize the ACNA as a “true faithful orthodox Church.” While breaking with the Episcopal Church as a national institution, the ECS said it would continue to “work with those parishes and dioceses in TEC who are Evangelical orthodox churches and faithful to God.”" The Episcopal Church of Sudan recognizes the ACNA as the legitimate Anglican church in the United States but also decided to "work with those parishes and dioceses in TEC who are Evangelical orthodox churches and faithful to God."[1]Mistico (talk) 19:33, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

Archbishops of Sudan[edit]

I found a source that shows the names of all the Archbishops of the Province, so I am adding their names to the article: [2].Mistico (talk) 00:02, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Number of Dioceses is Outdated[edit]

The number of dioceses of the Province of the Episcopal Church of South Sudan and Sudan has increased from the given number of 31 to 41. The previous number came from the province official website, which has been inactive for a long time, but according to the Anglican Communion official website the current number of dioceses is 41: [3]Mistico (talk) 17:11, 9 December 2015 (UTC)
