Presiding Bishop making stop in Vicksburg

From Mississippi-

All four Episcopal Churches in Warren County are preparing for the visitor of a lifetime.

The Episcopal Church’s Presiding Bishop Michael Curry will be in town next Sunday, June 12. He is scheduled to preach an 11 a.m. worship and Eucharist service at the Vicksburg Convention Center, 1600 Mulberry St. The service will commemorate the lives of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, Michael Schwerner and the martyrs of Philadelphia.

“It’s all going to be designed for the celebration of those who gave their lives during the Civil Rights era in Mississippi,” the Rev. Margaret Ayers of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church said. “It’ll be a celebration in Mississippi by our first African-American presiding bishop.”
