Sudanese Bishop Visit

The Rt. Rev. Moses Anur Ayom, Bishop of the Diocese of Athooch in the Episcopal Church of South Sudan, and Rebecca Koryom, head of the Mothers Union in that diocese, visited Holy Family on May 3, 2018 as part of their Global Missions Commission partnership. They were accompanied by The Rt. Rev. Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows, Bishop of the Diocese of Indianapolis. and The Rev. Jeffrey Bowers, Associate Rector at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.
The Diocese of Athooch was formed in 2014 when then-Archbishop Daniel Deng Bul split the Diocese of Bor into two entities and established the new diocese north of Bor. Deng Bul retired last month and was succeeded by the Most Rev. Justin Bada Arama. The Diocese of Indianapolis had a companion relationship with the Diocese of Bor from 2002-2016.
