“… our well-beloved in Christ, The Rev. Thomas H. Harbold, Clerk in Holy Orders…”


It’s official! I have a new — and God willing, permanent — ecclesiastical jurisdiction. After being kindly afforded provisional episcopal oversight by Archbishop Peter Robinson, Presiding Bishop of the United Episcopal Church of North America, I received yesterday (Monday, June 6, 2016) via US Mail formal notification from Archbishop Peter of my reception into that jurisdiction. Above is a scanned version of my formal letter of reception. I am profoundly humbled, deeply grateful, and quite excited about ministering in the UECNA! My fervent thanks to Archbishop Peter, and to all those who spoke for me. You are all in my prayers!

I am an ordained Anglican clergyman, published writer, former op-ed columnist, and experienced outdoor and informal educator. I am also a traditionalist: religiously, philosophically, politically, and socially. I seek to do my bit to promote and restore the Good, the True, and the Beautiful, in a world which has too-often lost touch with all three, and to help re-weave the connections between God, Nature, and humankind which our techno-industrial civilization has strained and broken.
