Withdrawal of Mission to Seafarers Honorary Chaplaincy at Santos, Sao Paulo, Brazil
Dear Fr Leandro Campos,
I understand that the Primate Bishop of Brazil Dom Mauricio Araujo de Andrade wrote to you on the 16th April 2013 withdrawing your licence to officiate as Priest in the Episcopal Diocese of Brazil.
As the Episcopal Diocese of Brazil is part of the Anglican Communion and The Mission to Seafarers is the Maritime Mission arm of that Communion, and as you have withdrawn yourself from that Communion and as you can no longer function as a Priest within the Diocese of Brazil, it is with great regret that I must inform you that you are no longer to act as The Mission to Seafarers Honorary Chaplain.
You are not to act in any way as a representative of The Mission to Seafarers.
Be assured that I will be praying that the situation can be resolved in peace and harmony for the good of the whole Church.
Revd Canon Huw Mosford
Director of Chaplaincy
