Bishop in Kokura

Bishop Luke will be presiding at a Holy Communion service with Baptism and Confirmation at Immanuel Church, Kokura, tomorrow.

Lent begins next week (Ash Wednesday, March 5th), so many churches will have special services on that day.

A work camp group led by Rev. Ushijima of Kyushu Diocese, Rev. Osada of Kobe Diocese, and Rev. Iwasa of Okinawa Diocese, arrived in Manila yesterday, and will be busy at two main locations until March 10th, when they are due to return to Japan.
