First Woman Bishop of Cuba Episcopal Church

HAVANA – The first woman bishop of the Episcopal Church in Cuba, Maria Griselda Delgado, took office at a ceremony held in Havana, official media said Monday.

The service consecrating the bishop took place Sunday at the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in the presence of guests from other Cuban churches and from countries that included Canada, the United States, Jamaica and Barbados, a report by the official Prensa Latina news agency said.

Upon being made bishop, the Rev. Delgado gave a sermon in which she called upon everyone “to have optimism and hope” for the future, and to “preserve and display the best values of human beings.”

Among those attending the ceremony were the primates of the Anglican Church of Canada, Frederick James Hiltz, and of the United States, Katharine Jeffers Shori.

Also taking part was the head of the Office of Attention to Religious Matters of the Cuban Communist Party Central Committee, Caridad Diego, along with officials of the Cuban judiciary. EFE
