We are Anglicans and speak the Portuguese Language!

The Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil welcome between  February 26-28 in Recife / PE, the second meeting of Portuguese speaking Dioceses of the Anglican Communion with support from the Anglican Communion Office, the Anglican Alliance and the US (formerly USPG).

According to the Primate Bishop of the IEAB Dom Francisco de Assis Silva “(…) the meeting will be an opportunity to strengthen ties between the Portuguese-speaking churches, opening possibilities of cooperation in the areas of  Theological Education, Diakonia and Development and Mission”. He also points out that  “(…) the Portuguese-speaking Anglicans have a large contribution to make to the Anglican Communion. The Brazilian delegation at the meeting brings together key representatives of the Province, thus revealing what a great importance this initiave is for Brazil.”
