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.
