NIGERIAN ANGLICANS DEDICATE NEW CATHEDRAL IN HOUSTON

By David W. Virtue, DD
More than 500 mostly Nigerian Anglicans packed Holy Trinity Cathedral Church in Houston on Saturday for an African style dedication of a new cathedral. Abuja-based Nigerian Primate, Henry Ndukuba, archbishop of the largest province in the Anglican communion, officially dedicated the new $5 million structure.
The Rt. Rev. Bill Atwood, Dean of the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) for International Affairs, said there were about 15 bishops present, plus the Primate of Nigeria and one of the regional archbishops, Ali Buba Lamido, Archbishop of Kaduna. Atwood was there representing ACNA Archbishop Foley Beach.
"Each part of the cathedral was dedicated, but the dedication of the altar with all the bishops and archbishops laying hands on it and praying extemporaneously aloud and in the Spirit was the most powerful." Wonderful, warm thanksgiving for both the ACNA and GAFCON were offered, said Atwood.
