At the invitation of Archbishop Fred Hiltz, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori will visit the General Synod July 3 and 4 in Ottawa.
Additionally, this year’s General Synod will be the first-ever Joint Assembly with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada. More than 800 Anglicans, Lutherans, and others are expected for the joint national meeting, which runs July 3 to 7.
The theme of the gathering is "Together for the love of the world."
Presiding Bishop Jefferts Schori will present greetings at the historic event.
“This is a remarkable and historic event for Anglicans and Lutherans in Canada,” Presiding Bishop Jefferts Schori said. “It is an honor to participate and I look forward to exploring how our respective churches might strengthen our common witness to God’s mission.”
