Anglican Archbishop of Myanmar to preach at St. Barnabas Anglican Church in Shoreline Tuesday

St. Barnabas in Shoreline is across from Twin Ponds Park at 1st Ave NE

Archbishop Stephen Than Myint Oo, leader of the Anglican Province of Myanmar, will preach at a special celebration of the Holy Eucharist at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 22, at St. Barnabas Anglican Church in Shoreline.

The service will follow a private meeting with clergy from the Diocese of Cascadia, Anglican Church of North America. The Rt. Rev. Kevin Bond Allen, Bishop of Cascadia, will be the celebrant.

“Archbishop Stephen has a compelling story of faith and perseverance and faith,” said Fr. Harley Crain, rector of St. Barnabas. This will be Archbishop Stephen’s second visit to St. Barnabas. 
“Myanmar [formerly Burma] is at the crossroads of big change,” Archbishop Stephen said recently, according to the Anglican Communion News Service. “It is more important than ever that people remember us in prayer."

He said the church must hold onto Christian ethics and values – especially love, unity and community – in the midst of this change. 

“Together we must be more active and more conscious, and there must be more learning and more cooperation."

St. Barnabas is located at 2340 N 155th St. For more information, call Fr. Crain, 206.365.6565.
