[Episcopal News Service] Two major events during Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s visit to the Pittsburgh diocese Feb. 3-5 will be streamed on the internet for those unable to attend in person.

Viewers can watch the Absalom Jones Day Eucharist from Holy Cross Church, Homewood, beginning at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 4, and the “Taking the Jesus Movement to the Mon” Eucharist from St. Stephen’s Church, McKeesport, beginning at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 5. At each, the presiding bishop will preach and preside.

Both services will be streamed live at WMCK.FM. It is an internet radio station with studios at St. Stephen’s and is providing live news coverage of the presiding bishop’s visit as a service to the greater community.

The two services will also be available live and on demand on the Episcopal Church website here.

The Pittsburgh event is one of six that the Episcopal Church is working with diocesan teams to organize as “Episcopal Revivals” in 2017 and 2018. Their goal, according to a recent press release, is “to stir and renew hearts for Jesus, to equip Episcopalians as evangelists, and to welcome people who aren’t part of a church to join the Jesus Movement.”

The revivals that have been slated for 2017 and 2018 are:

May 5 – 7: Diocese of West Missouri

Sept. 23-24: Diocese of Georgia

Nov. 17-19: Diocese of San Joaquin

April 6 – 8, 2018: Diocese of Honduras

July 2018: Joint Evangelism Mission with the Church of England

More will be planned in the years ahead, according to the press release.
