The leader of 3 million Anglicans in the United States and in other provinces around the world will visit McKeesport on Feb. 5 to celebrate the Holy Eucharist and encourage local churches to continue their missions to the Mon Valley.
The Most Rev. Michael Bruce Curry, presiding bishop of the U.S. Episcopal Church, will preach and celebrate the Holy Eucharist at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church at 11 a.m.
The service is open to the public and will be broadcast online by McKeesport internet radio station WMCK.FM.
Curry, the 27th presiding bishop, is visiting Pittsburgh in the first of five planned revivals in Episcopal dioceses around the country, a spokesman for the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh said. Curry will lead worship, preach, listen and speak at a series of events centered around two themes central to his ministry: evangelism and racial reconciliation.
