PB to Preach in England

Adapted from the Episcopal Church’s Office of Public Affairs

At the invitation of the Very Rev. Jeffrey John, dean, Presiding Bishop and Primate Katharine Jefferts Schori will concelebrate and preach at noon at the Church of England’s Cathedral and Abbey Church of St. Alban, and will participate in the annual Alban Pilgrimage on June 21.

“I have been fascinated with Alban for years — the first English martyr, newly baptized, who sheltered a priest fleeing persecution and gave his life in the other’s stead,” Bishop Jefferts Schori said. “He is a remarkable example of baptismal vocation.”

On June 22, at the invitation of the Rev. Canon Brian Mountford, vicar, she will preach at the University Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Oxford University, at 10:30 a.m.

On June 25, she will be awarded an honorary Doctor of Divinity by the University of Oxford.

“I am deeply honored by this development,” the Bishop Jefferts Schori said. “None of us comes to a time like this without the teaching, support, and partnership of many, many people. I am immensely grateful for their companionship in this journey.”
