Communiqui from the Anglican Church of Mexico

11 June 2002

As it is well known through different channels, we have discovered a
shameful mismanagement of funds in the dioceses of Northern and Western
Mexico, which has led us to a grave crisis as an autonomous province of the
Anglican Communion.

The Episcopal College (House of Bishops) has decided, with the expressed
resolution of the Executive Council of this Church, and after careful
examination and study of the results of the audits recently carried out, to
intervene in the financial and administrative areas of both dioceses. Such
interventions will seek an expedient solution to the conflict by the
application of corrective and preventative measures.

Furthermore, [the Episcopal College] has resolved to withdraw recognition of
Bishop Samuel Espinoza as the Primate of this Church, and to withdraw and
suspend the Episcopal authority and privileges of Bishops German Martinez
Marquez and Samuel Espinoza Venegas.

We request our brothers [and sisters] in the faith to support us with their
prayers so that the grace and guidance of the Holy Spirit may guide our
efforts as guardians of the Faith and shepherds of Christ's flock.

Faithfully in Christ:

The Episcopal College of the Anglican Church of Mexico
