BISHOP Graham Rights, Moravian Bishop of the Unity residing in the USA Southern Province, was recently a guest speaker in St Colmanell’s, Ahoghill.

A large congregation of Anglicans and Moravians heard the Bishop speak about the Agreement in the United States, called ‘Finding our Delight in the Lord’ and shared hopes for a similar agreement in Ireland.

Bishop Graham was staying in Gracehill before travelling down to Kilkenny for talks with the Church of Ireland based on the agreement reached between the Moravian Church in the United States and the Episcopal Church in the United States.

Travelling with him were the Rev Sarah Groves, minister at Gracehill, the Rev Paul Holdsworth from the Belfast Moravian Congregations and the Rev Philip Cooper, ecumenical officer of the Moravian Church.

During his stay, Graham covered a lot of ground visiting with Moravians in Belfast and Gracehill. He said the visit to the Holy Communion Service at St Colmanell’s had been a highlight of his visit.
