From the website of the Diocese of San Joaquin.

There are some good pastoral letters here on the website of the Diocese of San Joaquin.

This historic and momentous decision by our Annual Convention was the culmination of The Episcopal Church’s failure to heed the repeated calls for repentance issued by the Primates of the Anglican Communion and for the cessation of false teaching and sacramental actions explicitly contrary to Scripture. However, we are no longer operating under the looming shadow of this institutional apostasy because our Annual Convention wisely and prayerfully accepted the gracious invitation for sanctuary from the Southern Cone.

Among those things that will remain the same is the solid teaching of the word of God free from worldly compromise, giving priority to your spiritual well being, faith, and salvation along with a future in the Anglican Communion. You may well discover, too, what it is like to witness to your faith without having to apologize for or feel embarrassed by the decisions of a Church over which you had no control.

Amen to that! It is such a wonderful freedom to have come out from an apostate church ... to be able to feel good about inviting people to church again ... to read of the continuing folly and wickedness of TEc (whether in print or online) and to think: I no longer have to apologize for being connected to that, for funding that. I am no longer tied to the rotten, stinking carcass that is The Episcopal church!

Thanks be to God!!
