Presiding Episcopal bishop to visit Christ Church Cathedral for 200th

From Western Mass.-

The Most Rev. Michael Curry will celebrate the Sunday, Oct. 15, 10 a.m. liturgy at Christ Church Cathedral, as well as attend the Choral Evensong at 4 p.m., during a three-day visit timed to the church's 200th anniversary.

Curry, the first African-American Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, is well known as a dynamic preacher who has called for a revival of Christianity.

The cathedral is the seat of the Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts, headed by the Right Rev. Douglas Fisher, and both services are open to the public.

"I'm so pleased that our presiding bishop was able to accept our invitation to be part of this joyful day," said Fisher who was recently with Curry during the Church's House of Bishops annual six-day fall meeting held this year in Fairbanks, Alaska.
