Primate of Mexico to Preach at Council

Archbishop Carlos Touché-Porter, 63, was consecrated Bishop of the Diocese of Mexico in 2002, and elected Primate of the Anglican Church of Mexico on in 2004. He did his theological studies at St. Andrew’s Seminary and the Episcopal Seminary of the Caribbean, Puerto Rico. Bishop Touché pursued additional studies in liturgy and Anglicanism, which he taught at St. Andrew’s Seminary, where he also served as dean. St. Andrew’s is the first Spanish-speaking Anglican seminary in America and is a main training center for clergy in Province IX.


Ordained a priest in 1977, Bishop Touche served as vicar of Holy Family in Mexico City before founding La Iglesia de Santa Maria Virgen in Iztapalapa, Mexico City, one of the largest Anglican churches in the country.

Bishop Touché has been active in the Church internationally and has authored numerous articles for journals in Mexico and abroad. His birthplace of Puerto de Frontera, Tabasco, a World Heritage Site situated at the mouth of the Rio Grijalva-Uzumacinta Mezcalapa, is one of the most bio-diverse in the world.
