Examples of modern Anglican saints

The ninth Lambeth Conferences, Lambeth Conference held in 1958 clarified the commemoration of Saints and Heroes of the Christian Church in the Anglican Communion. Resolution 79 stated: *In the case of scriptural saints, care should be taken to commemorate men or women in terms which are in strict accord with the facts made known in Holy Scripture. *In the case of other names, the Calendar should be limited to those whose historical character and devotion are beyond doubt. *In the choice of new names economy should be observed and controversial names should not be inserted until they can be seen in the perspective of history. *The addition of a new name should normally result from a widespread desire expressed in the region concerned over a reasonable period of time.
