Episcopal Church's presiding bishop visits Titusville

From Florida-

The presiding bishop of the U.S. Episcopal Church stopped in Titusville this morning as part of a regional tour to hear what area congregations are doing to reach out to communities dealing with concerns both financial and spiritual such as job losses and apathy to the Gospel.

The Most Rev. Dr. Katherine Jefferts Schori, the chief pastor of the nation's 2.4 million Episcopal Church, joined several other ministers for presentations at St. Gabriel's Episcopal Church in Titusville. Schori oversees 110 dioceses in 16 countries.

"They're doing a remarkable work of listening to the hungers and the yearning in this community," Jefferts Schori said after a tour of the historic downtown Titusville Church.

Jefferts Schori began the morning praying before the church's altar in the sanctuary.

The Rev. Rob Goodridge, joined by the Right Rev. Gregory O. Brewer, the Bishop of the Episcopal Church in Central Florida, led Jefferts Schori on a tour of the compound.
