“For Michael, our Presiding Bishop”
On November 1st at 12:00pm, the Rt. Rev. Michael B. Curry, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina, will be installed as the new Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church.
The Presiding Bishop is chief pastor to the Episcopal Church’s 2 million members across 17 countries and 108 dioceses. He or she is the ecumenical officer and primate, joining with the leaders of the other 38 Anglican Provinces in consultation to achieve the dream of God in this world.
Curry was elected on the first ballot during the Episcopal Church’s 78th General Convention. Watch the Rt. Rev. Todd Ousley’s reaction to the election of the 27th Presiding Bishop:
Curry is a gifted preacher, inspiring many to be a part of the “Jesus Movement”. He is also the first African-American to be elected to the office, following the election of the first woman, the Most. Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori.
Join the celebration by participating in the live webcast of the installation. The entire service will be live streamed via this link.
