“I am so looking forward to being with my friends and colleagues in the upcoming gathering of the Primates,” Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael B. Curry stated in a video message.

The Primates of the Anglican Communion, of which Presiding Bishop Curry is a member, will be meeting October 2-6 at Canterbury Cathedral in England.

Presiding Bishop Curry shared that he wants to discuss immigration at the gathering.  “I do hope we have an opportunity to talk about migration and immigrations and refugees,” he said.  “Most of our countries are impacted.”
