Society of St Wilfrid and St Hilda News

By the beginning of October, 391 parishes had passed a resolution under the House of Bishop's Declaration to come under the oversight of a member of the Council of Bishops of the Society. According to official figures, there were previously 368 "C" parishes with a petition under the old Act of Synod in force, so the process has resulted in a significant increase in the number of parishes under the oversight of the Society's bishops.
