Bishop Barbara Harris @ All Saints Church: May 8 & 9

Bishop Barbara Clementine Harris -- the first woman bishop in the Anglican Communion -- will make her first-ever visit to All Saints Church in Pasadena the weekend of May 8-9, 2010.

Bishop Harris is a long time friend of All Saints and an historic trailblazer for justice, compassion and equality. Ordained as Bishop Suffragan of Massachusetts in 1989, Bishop Harris’s prophetic ministry and her unique, powerful preaching style continue to challenge and inspire.

She rocked the house last summer as the preacher at the Integrity Eucharist in Anaheim at the General Convention of the Episcopal Church and you’ll want to mark your calendars now to be here in May when she rocks All Saints Church.

While in Pasadena, Bishop Harris will:
  • Preside & preach at Confirmation services on Saturday, May 8 at 10am
  • Preach at both the 9 & 11:15am services on Sunday, May 9.
  • During the Rector's Forum (10:15-11:00 am on Sunday) Bishop Harris will join All Saints Rector Ed Bacon for a conversation about her historic episcopate and hopes for the church's future.
I can't tell you what a delight it will be to welcome one of my favorite people on the planet to my favorite parish on the planet! I"m quite sure she's going to love All Saints as much as All Saints is going to TOTALLY love her!

Join us if you can!
