Former Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, who played a key role in the continuation of the Episcopal Church’s Diocese of Fort Worth, will celebrate and preach at a Eucharist at 6:15 p.m. March 20 at St. Christopher, Fort Worth.

A soup supper will follow the Eucharist. During the supper, she will discuss “Spirituality Out in Public.” All are welcome to the worship service and supper, but reservations are required.

In a breakfast discussion the next day that is solely for diocesan clergy, the bishop’s topic will be “What is the Spirit Creating? Possibilities in a Small Diocese from the Perspective of Someone Who Has Led One.”

Bishop Scott Mayer is already committed to a meeting in Chicago of General Convention’s Task Force to Study Sexism in the Episcopal Church and Develop Anti-Sexism Training, which he helps lead.

“I am sorry to miss this, but I know people here have a great deal of affection and respect for Bishop Katharine, as do I,” Mayer said. “I am grateful they will have this opportunity to spend time with her.”
