This Chicago Bishop Will Be Giving The Sermon At The Royal Wedding

It's recently been announced by the Kensington Palace that Bishop Michael Curry, the first Afircan-American man to preside over the Episcopal Church, will be delivering a sermon at the royal wedding.

Neither Harry nor Meghan have met the bishop, but hope to do so before the service at St George's Chapel, Windsor, on Saturday.

"I am thrilled that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have requested Bishop Michael Curry to evangelise at their wedding ceremony", Welby wrote on Twitter.

'And so we celebrate and pray for them today'. Bishop Michael Curry has been in the role since November 2015.

The Episcopal Church is an offshoot of the Church of England in the United States and forms part of the broader Anglican Communion worldwide. Historically, addresses at royal weddings are given by senior clergy from the Church of England.

A little something called the royal wedding.

With Trump's backing, Israel may even feel emboldened to take further pre-emptive action against Iranian targets in Syria. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Friday that Israel would be victorious in its "ongoing campaign" against Iran.

Born in Chicago in 1953, Curry moved to Buffalo, N.Y., one year later and grew up there, said church spokeswoman Neva Rae Fox.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have invited an American bishop to give the address at the royal wedding on May 19. However, its leader, the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, has welcomed the inclusion of Curry at the highly-anticipated ceremony, which he will officiate. Saint James congregant Hope Smith was interested in the Royal Wedding before, but says now it will be a must-see with the Bishop Curry speaking.

Welby, who baptized Markle ahead of her marriage to Harry, tweeted congratulations to Curry.

Curry, a Bills fan, has been active in issues of social justice and speaking out on immigration policy and marriage equality throughout his ministry.

He also hit the headlines in 2012 for a sermon called "We need some insane Christians" in which he discussed the notion that Jesus was "crazy" and that his followers need to be too.
