MIDDLEBORO — During a joy-filled Sunday service this past weekend, Reverend Canon Stephen DelSignore was consecrated as the Suffragan Bishop for the Diocese of the Resurrection in the Reformed Anglican Church. In a deeply moving service, Bishop Stephen was elevated to this honorable office in the RAC. Bishop DelSignore has been serving as the rector of St. Andrew’s Traditional Anglican Church in Middleborough, Masachussettes since it’s founding in September 2003.

Saint Andrew’s Church was filled to capacity with parishioners, family, friends, and clergy as Bishop DelSignore was consecrated by the Presiding Bishop, The Rt. Reverend Ian Anderson. Also participating in this blessed event was Bishop Del Murray from Florida, Bishop Dwight Irons from Georgia, Bishop Geoff Hubler from Virginia, and Reverend Greg Bennett, and Archdeacon Mark Maurais, both from Florida.

After this beautiful service, coffee and light refreshments were served at St. Andrew’s before a celebration luncheon at the LeBaron Hills Country Club in Lakeville. Services are held every Sunday, 9:30am at Saint Andrew’s Traditional Anglican Church which is located at 8 Highland Street in Middleborugh, MA.
