The largest parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Rio Grande is leaving the Episcopal Church. Being a charismatic outfit, it doesn't see any need to join any other Anglican ecclesial structure, so it's going to go it alone, bishop-wise. Good luck with that.

From the same article:
The Rt. Rev. Jeffrey N. Steenson, Bishop of the Diocese of the Rio Grande, could not be reached for confirmation.
Well there's a reason for that: he's becoming a Roman Catholic. If he successfully pursues re-ordination, and then becomes a real bishop, I'm sure at that point he will be able to be "reached for confirmation."
