Guest Speaker Bishop Cathrine Waynick

Posted: 5/2/2017

Sunday, May 7; 9:00 and 11:15 Eucharists

We will be enormously privileged to welcome to Holy Comforter the Rt. Rev. Catherine Waynick, Bishop of the Diocese of Indianapolis. Bp. Cate, as she is commonly known, has been the Bishop of the southern half of the state of Indiana for 20 years, and was only the second woman to be a Diocesan Bishop in the Episcopal Church. A native of Michigan, Bp. Cate will be in the Chicago area to participate in the annual meeting of the Board of Governors of the Anglican Centre in Rome. She retired as the Bishop of Indianapolis yesterday following the consecration of her successor, the Rt. Rev. Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows, an old friend of Holy Comforter. This means that Bp. Cate's visit to our parish will be her first post-retirement event, and we will want to welcome her warmly. Please make every effort to be present to hear Bp. Cate preach on the 7th: renowned for her warmth and pastoral sensitivities, she is sure to offer an insightful sermon on that middle Sunday of the Season of Easter!
