LONDON - The archbishop of Canterbury, spiritual leader of the world's 79 million Anglican Christians, said yesterday that he would convene an extraordinary meeting of church leaders here to avert a schism over the confirmation of an openly gay bishop in the Episcopal Church in the United States. The archbishop, Rowan Williams, regarded as first among equals in the Anglican Church, said the meeting would be held in October. "I am clear that the anxieties caused by recent developments have reached the point where we will need to sit down and discuss their consequences," he said in a statement.

The Rev. Edward Meeks and his flock attended to a "million and one details" last week in the run-up to a momentous day for their church. People to talk to. Flowers to arrange. Food to cook. And, of course, the new sign. On Sunday, Christ the King Church - Anglican - became Christ the King Catholic Church. The Towson congregation of about 140 is one of the first groups in the United States to join a new "ordinariate" established for those who want to be Catholic but hold on to Anglican traditions.

I hope Dan Rodricks has gone into his "bob-and-weave. " No doubt his column Thursday ( "Not enough priests? End celibacy, ordain women," Oct. 28 ) will have the more conservative Catholic faithful throwing theological haymakers his way. The thing is he's absolutely right. The problems in the priesthood were brought home to me on a personal level. My uncle was a Jesuit and chairman of the organic chemistry department at a medium-size university. He was in the order for 38 years.

In the wake of Vatican plans to make it easier for Episcopalians to become Catholic, the Episcopal bishop of Maryland would like to make one point clear: The door swings both ways. Lost in talk of the splintering of the Anglican Communion, Bishop Eugene Taylor Sutton says, is the appeal that the 45,000-member Episcopal Diocese of Maryland has held for former Roman Catholics and others looking for a big-tent church. While attention focused on the conversion en masse last month of a Catonsville-based order of Episcopal nuns to the Catholic Archdiocese of Baltimore, the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland has received three former Roman Catholic clergy in the past couple of months, Sutton says.

WASHINGTON -- The Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori was empowered to take charge of the Episcopal Church yesterday in a Gothic sanctuary filled with well-wishers and clouds of incense, becoming the first woman to lead a national church in the Anglican Communion's 520-year history. The investiture of Jefferts Schori, an airplane pilot and former oceanographer, as presiding bishop of the denomination drew a standing ovation from the 3,200 people in Washington's National Cathedral, which was decorated with banners and flowers displaying the "colors of dawn" she selected as a motif: blues, greens, orange, silver and gold.

Archbishop Gilbert McDowell, 66, the leader of the traditionalist United Anglican Church, died Friday in Rome after attending 25th anniversary celebrations for Pope John Paul II. The United Anglican Church is not in communion with Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, spiritual leader of most of the world's Anglicans. It is among the conservative groups that 30 years ago cut ties with the Anglican Communion's American branch, the Episcopal Church, feeling it was becoming too liberal.
