Presiding Bishop preaches at South Korean cathedral

[Episcopal News Service – Seoul, South Korea] Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori preached Oct. 3 at the Cathedral of St. Mary and St. Nicholas in downtown Seoul.

She spoke through a translator whose voice has been edited out of this video after her introductory remarks. Jefferts Schori preached on the Gospel reading for the day, Mark 10:2-16, in which some Pharisees question Jesus about divorce.

Participants in Episcopal Asiamerica Ministries’ Sept. 30-Oct. 5 international consultation here spread out that morning to worship at various Anglican churches.

The Anglican Church of Korea celebrated its 125th anniversary the day before at a festive Eucharist at the cathedral. The Anglican Church in Korea was established Sept. 29, 1890, with the arrival of Anglican Bishop Charles John Corfe as the first diocesan bishop of Seoul. It has grown to over 65,000 members in 120 parishes and missions.
