Back To Events

The Wilma Ruth Combs/Northern Ohio Chapter of the Union of Black Episcopalians, the Diocese of Ohio, and Trinity Cathedral are co-hosting the Diocesan Celebration of the Consecration of the Rt. Rev. Barbara Clementine Harris and the Commemoration of the Rev. Absalom Jones. This Eucharist will be held on Saturday, February 11 at 11:00 a.m. at Trinity Cathedral. The preacher will be the Rt. Rev. Gayle E. Harris, Retired Bishop Suffragan, Diocese of Massachusetts, who succeeded Bishop Barbara as Suffragan. Celebrant Bishop Hollingsworth will be joined by diocesan co-celebrants on the occasion of the first observance of this feast day following the passage of the General Convention resolution honoring Bishop Barbara. The music director for the service will be T. Buckley McDaniel, Director of Chapel Music at General Theological Seminary. The offering will be sent to the Presiding Bishop's Fund for the Episcopal Historically Black Colleges. A reception will follow in the Trinity Piazza. This service is to be a wonderful tribute to the life and ministry of Bishop Barbara Harris and will also honor the Rev. Absalom Jones, whose feast day is February 13. We hope that we will be joined by members from around the diocese for this celebration on Saturday, February 11. This service will be livestreamed on the Trinity Cathedral Facebook page and the Trinity Cathedral website.
