Bishop Gates travels to Tanzania to re-connect with mission partners

Bishop Alan M. Gates will travel to the Diocese of Tanga in Tanzania, May 22-June 2, in order to meet Tanga's bishop, the Rt. Rev. Maimbo Mndolwa, and become better acquainted with ministry partnerships and health-care and school projects that the Diocese of Massachusetts and several of its parishes have long been involved with there. 

"We remain committed to our global Anglican relationships, and these partnerships on the ground with our fellow Anglicans lead us to keep our focus on common mission," Gates said of the importance of making the trip.

Also traveling are the Rev. Sarah Randall, SSM of the Diocese of Massachusetts and Bishop Mark Hollingsworth and a delegation from the Diocese of Ohio.
