You may have heard that the Rev. Dr. Tory Baucum of Truro Episcopal Church was recently appointed to the position of preacher at Canterbury Cathedral by the Archbishop of Canterbury. Dr. Baucum, formerly an Episcopal priest, is now the rector of Truro Church in Fairfax, Virginia, an ACNA parish. He is jointly under Bishop John Guernsey (ACNA) and Bishop Julian Dobbs of CANA. He is remembered in the Diocese of Albany as a candidate for bishop in 2006 at the convention that ultimately elected Bishop, William Love.

Baucum was at one time licensed in the Diocese of Lexington. In 2005, Bishop Stacy Sauls, then Bishop of Lexington, revoked his license; Bishop Love and the Diocese of Albany took him in. The next thing anyone knew, Dr. Baucum transferred to the Diocese of London, England.
