David Bane, resigned bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia, was received back into the Episcopal Church at a ceremony led by Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and the Bishop of East Carolina, the Rt. Rev. Robert Skirving, at a ceremony last night at Christ Episcopal Church in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. In 2009 Bishop Bane was deposed for having entered the Anglican Church in North America. A spokesman for the Presiding Bishop said the New York office of the national church would issue a statement later today on Bishop Bane's reinstatement.
