Compass Rose Society Hosts Annual General Meeting Online as Bishop Doyle Completes his Tenure as President

The Compass Rose Society is a group of international Anglicans/Episcopalians who seek to support the ministry of the Archbishop of Canterbury within our Anglican Communion. It connects Dioceses around the world, both providing financial support and sharing news in our global communion. Bishop Doyle has served as President of the Compass Rose Society since 2014, and the 2020 Annual General Meeting marks the conclusion of his tenure.

Regarding the Compass Rose Society’s impact, Bishop Doyle writes, “We contribute significantly to the work of the Anglican Consultative Council, particularly in communications. We also support international mission work. In total, we have contributed over $12 million (US) dollars to date.”

Members of the Compass Rose Society, he says, “…experience first-hand, the extraordinary ministry being undertaken by the church – often in difficult circumstances. Whether recycling projects in impoverished, overcrowded cities in Brazil or church-run orphanages housing HIV/AIDs victims in South Africa, we have found hope for the future. No one returns from these visits unchanged.”

Each year, the Compass Rose Society gathers in London for the Annual General Meeting; this year, due to COVID-19 concerns, the gathering is hosted online. Members from around the world have shared their experience of this year in the form of videos. Overall, the message is clear: amidst the difficulty of a global pandemic, the Compass Rose Society has provided connection, support, and hope.
