The Rt. Rev. Valentino Mokiwa elected Archbishop of Tanzania

From, some international news with a local connection:

Some exciting news for my rector, Fr. Lawrence Bausch, and the people of Holy Trinity Parish, where Archbishop-elect Mokiwa (Dar Es Salaam) is companion bishop (Archbishop Gregory Venables, Diocesan). Many in our community had the chance to meet then-Bishop Mokiwa during his visit to Holy Trinity Parish and the local AAC Chapter just this past February.

Of note, the province of Tanzania has typically alternated its selection of primates, choosing more Anglo-Catholic archbishops for itself every other election. In this instance, however, the province has chosen a second Anglo-Catholic as successor to Archbishop Mtetemela.

I understand some from Holy Trinity Parish may be attending the installation on May 25 of this year.
