Most Southwestern England

In Truro, England, which bills itself as the most Southwestern part of the island nation, the Church of England's 13th Bishop from 1990 through 1997 was Michael Thomas Ball. He was also co-founder with his twin brother in 1960 of The Community of the Glorious Ascension (CGA). He was an early leader in ordaining women in the C.E. He seems rather wholesome, listing his recreations as "Sport, Music, Housework, Dog walking."

I don't see specifics on the Web, but there appear to be some good stories somewhere about motorcycling monks from the CGA. Jump in if you have tales of this order or what happened to the Bishops Ball.
