“I look forward to renewing friendships and visiting new areas in Asia, and I am grateful for these invitations,” Presiding Bishop Jefferts Schori commented. “This visit will allow us to learn more about local context, the challenges and opportunities the Church faces, and explore how to deepen our partnership in God’s mission.”

Among her activities from February 9 to March 2, Presiding Bishop Jefferts Schori will visit and meet with the Anglican Primates of the Philippines, Nippon Sei Ko Kei (Anglican Church of Japan), South Korea, Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui, Macau, Taiwan, which is a diocese of the Episcopal Church, and Iglesia Filipina Indipendiente.
