Forum: Cuba and the Episcopal Church
Sunday, January 06, 2019, 10:15 AM - 11:05 AM
The Diocese of Cuba was ushered out of the Episcopal Church in 1966 by the House of Bishops because of the political tensions between the US and Cuba. The Rev. Luis León, who was born in Cuba, served as chair of a church task force that resulted in General Convention welcoming back the Diocese of Cuba in July, 2018.
Rev. León, former rector of St. John's Lafayette Square who now worships at St. Alban's, will provide historical context, update us on the present Diocese of Cuba, and discuss hopes and challenges for the future.
