The Bishops of the Diocese of North Carolina Give Thanks for the Life of the Rt. Rev. Barbara C. Harris
On March 13, 2020, the Rt. Rev. Barbara Clementine Harris entered into the company of the saints in light. She was surrounded by loved ones, and by prayers from across the church and around the world. Her death marks the end of the earthly life of a remarkable woman and a groundbreaking leader in the Church. She was the first woman bishop in the Anglican communion, a passionate voice for justice and peace, a champion of civil rights and women’s rights, and a dear friend and mentor to many of us. Join us in giving thanks for Bishop Harris’ life and witness, even as we grieve, knowing that she is now in the fullness of God’s love and in the company of the one she served so faithfully, her precious Lord, Jesus.
Services will take place at the Washington National Cathedral and at St. Paul’s Cathedral in Boston. Timing for those services will be announced at a later date. Together, let us remember Barbara in our prayers, and celebrate her life and her legacy for the Church and for God’s people. May she rest in peace and rise in glory.
