This weekend, the Archbishop of Canterbury was in Istanbul to make ecumenical visits and to preside and preach at Christ Church Anglican Church on Sunday morning. It was a joyful and inspiring occasion! 

[Note, in the picture above, the hens looking down, keeping a safe distance!]

During his visit, the Archbishop met with Patriarch Bartholomew and attended the 10th anniversary celebration Mass for the ministry of Pope Francis at Holy Spirit Cathedral in Harbiye. We give thanks for Archbishop Justin, and pray for him as his tour continues in Bulgaria.
