Presiding Bishop-Elect Michael Curry will preach at the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan’s Absalom Jones celebration. This takes place at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20, 2016 at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul, Detroit.
Full details will be forthcoming. This will be the first appearance by the head of the Episcopal Church in our diocese since the October 2013 appearance of Presiding Bishop Katherine Jefferts Schori at the 179th Diocesan Convention.
Curry was elected the church’s 27th presiding bishop — and first African-American presiding bishop — on June 27 at the 78th General Convention of the Episcopal Church. Curry will be installed as presiding bishop and primate Nov. 1 at the Washington National Cathedral.
The new presiding bishop will preach at the diocese’s Absalom Jones celebration, with Bishop Wendell Gibbs Jr. serving as celebrant. Curry will also preach on Sunday, Feb. 21 at Christ Church Cranbrook, Bloomfield Hills.
