ALBANY: Retired Albany Bishop Daniel Herzog rejoins the Episcopal Church

[Episcopal News Service] Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori has issued an order for Restoration of Ordained Ministry for retired Bishop of Albany Daniel W. Herzog, who left the Episcopal Church in March 2007 to join the Roman Catholic Church.
"I am delighted at his return to ordained ministry in the Episcopal Church," said Jefferts Schori.

The presiding bishop issued the order after "full consultation and on the recommendation of Diocese of Albany Bishop William H. Love," according to a news release from the church's Office of Public Affairs.

Read the rest here ... and nice to see that the door is always open for those who choose to return home to do so.

Quite quite amazing. What a fine thing it says about TEC that it brings the prodigal fully back home.
