Saint James representative go to Philadelphia

Representatives from Saint James and other local churches met at Christ Church, Philadelphia to create the Diocese of Pennsylvania. Prior to the Revolution, there were no American dioceses or bishops. Local churches were part of the Church of England overseen by the Bishop of London which required ordination candidates to cross the Atlantic in order to be ordained. Following the revolution and the breaking of all ties with Britain, there was a pastoral and practical need for bishops and dioceses.
