The Wilma Ruth Combs/Northern Ohio Chapter of the Union of Black Episcopalians, the Diocese of Ohio, and Trinity Cathedral co-hosted the Diocesan Celebration of the Consecration of the Rt. Rev. Barbara Clementine Harris and the Commemoration of the Rev. Absalom Jones on Saturday, February 11.

The Rt. Rev. Gayle E. Harris, Bishop Suffragan, Diocese of Massachusetts, a native of Cleveland who succeeded Bishop Barbara as Suffragan, preached at the service. Bishop Hollingsworth was the celebrant and he was joined by diocesan concelebrants.

The service marked the first observance of this feast day following the passage of the General Convention resolution C023 that “included and entered the Rt. Rev. Barbara Clementine Harris, the first woman bishop in the Anglican Communion and an African-American, to the Calendar of the Church Year, to be celebrated on March 13.”

The offering from the service was sent to the Presiding Bishop's Fund for the Episcopal Historically Black Colleges.
