Diocese of Recife

I lift up my eyes to the mountains;

where is my help to come from?

My help comes from the Lord (Yahweh)

who made heaven and earth.                      Ps. 121, 1-2

To our brothers and sisters of the Diocese of Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil

Beloved brethren in Christ:

The Anglican Episcopal Church of Brazil, the IEAB, on behalf of its Primate Bishop, wishes to express its feeling of consternation and deep condolences for the passing in most tragic circumstances of Edward Robinson de Barros Cavalcanti, who had served as Bishop of the IEAB in the Anglican Diocese of Recife from 1977 to 2005, and of his wife, Miriam Cotias Cavalcanti.

May the Lord receive them in His mercy and console their beloved friends and relatives.

+ Dom Mauricio Andrade

Diocesan Bishop of the Anglican Diocese in Brasilia, and Primate of the Anglican Episcopal Church of Brazil
