The Guest Preacher on IV Lent (Sunday 3rd April 2011) at St Augustine’s Church, Canterbury, was the Revd Jerry Bova.
Deacon Bova, who was ordained deacon on 22nd January 2011, by Bishop Rommie Stark’s of the ACC Diocese of the Midwest, is visiting the United Kingdom with his wife Libby. Their home Parish is All Saints, Bellbrook,Ohio, USA.
Deacon and Mrs Bova stayed for a few days with Bishop Mead in Kent before setting off to explore further the British Isles.
After the Service, on what is also Mothering Sunday, the ladies present received a small bunch of flowers (which Mrs Libby Bova had very thoughtfully provided).
