(The Most Reverend) Mark Haverland, Ph.D.
Sixth Acting Primate, Anglican Catholic Church
Brother John-Charles, Bishop in the Church of God, was a beloved friend, spiritual director, and mentor, to me and to many other Traditional Anglicans around the world: he was kind enough to serve as a confessor and spiritual director for me from 1994 to 2000. A man of remarkable ascetical and intellectual gifts, he was a master of the spiritual life and a truly eminent and holy pastor and theologian. Of your Christian charity, pray for the repose of his sacerdotal soul.
