N.C. bishop to speak

From Kansas-

The first black bishop to lead a southern diocese in the Episcopal Church USA will be the special guest at this week's 151st annual convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas, which will take place on Friday and Saturday in Topeka.

The Rt. Rev. Michael Curry, 57, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina, will speak at an opening worship service at 9 a.m. Friday at Grace Episcopal Cathedral, 701 S.W. 8th.

Kansas Bishop Dean E. Wolfe's annual address will begin the convention at 1 p.m. Friday at Maner Conference Center at the Kansas Expocentre, near S.W. 17th and Western.

Bishop Curry will address the convention at 9:10 a.m. Saturday, and business is scheduled to conclude by early afternoon.

Convention delegates will consider a proposed 2011 diocesan budget, called the mission plan, of just under $1.9 million. They also will elect people to a variety of offices, including the Council of Trustees, which governs the diocese between conventions, and deputies to the triennial General Convention of the Episcopal Church in July 2012 in Indianapolis.
