A newly-elected leader in the Anglican Communion arrives this Wednesday for a visit to the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh. 

From July 1 through the Fourth of July holiday weekend, the Archbishop-elect of the Province of the Congo, the Rt. Rev. Henri Isingoma Kahwa, will visit several parishes, lead worship services, and observe a range of ministries.  The Archbishop-elect’s schedule in Pittsburgh has been slightly shortened from previously announced plans due to European travel delays.

His schedule includes:

♦Thursday 5:00-8:00 p.m. St. Stephen’s, Wilkinsburg youth outreach event

♦ Friday noon Eucharist at Trinity Cathedral, downtown Pittsburgh

♦ Friday 7:00 p.m. First Fridays at the Frick: Babatunde Lea in concert

♦ Saturday, 10 a.m. – 12:00 noon Front Yard Fourth at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, Brentwood,

♦ Sunday Eucharist at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. at Calvary Church, Shadyside

Archbishop-elect Kahwa is one of several Anglican Primates visiting the United States this summer to gain a better appreciation of the work and workings of The Episcopal Church.

He will be installed as archbishop in a ceremony to take place in the Democratic Republic of Congo in August.
