News From The Global Center

The Rt. Rev. Julio E. Murray Th., the Bishop of the Diocese of Panamá, a diocese of IARCA (Iglesia Anglicana en la Región de America Centro), has been elected President of the Latin American Council of Churches. Here's a fóto of him blessing the UTO Ingathering at the ECW Convention earlier this month.

Also, The Episcopal Church of Cuba has just elected their first female bishop. The (soon to be Rt.) Rev. Canon Nerva Cot Aguilera will be the suffragan bishop for the western part of Cuba. She is married to the dean of the cathedral in Havana and her daughter, who is also a priest, is pursuing her doctoral degree in Brazil. She will be the first Latin-American female bishop (note: we lost the opportunity of having the first one, since in the last election for the bishop of Pelotas, one month ago, the Rev. Ilaine Marizete Zschornack didn't manage to win and ended up as the 2nd).
