The Bishop of Argentina, Greg Venables, has been re-elected as the new Primate of the Anglican Church of South America. He succeeds Bishop Tito Muñoz of Chile who came to the end of his second three-year term – the maximum permitted under the province’s canons. Bishop Greg was the House of Bishops’ unanimous choice to be the new Presiding Bishop – or Obispo Presidente – of South America when they met at the weekend. His appointment was confirmed at the provincial Synod this week, and he took office on Wednesday (9 November) at a combined service of installation and welcome.
