Published May 1, 2010


The Rev. Isaac Kawuki Mukasa has been seated as a canon in St. Alban’s Cathedral in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, in recognition of his work “building bridges between African and Canadian dioceses.”

Canon Mukasa, who is co-ordinator for dialogue in the Anglican Church of Canada’s department of Faith, Worship and Ministry, was acknowledged for his participation in a correspondence project.

In the project, several African and Canadian dioceses shared views and approaches to the issue of human sexuality and the blessing of same-sex unions.

He was seated on Mar. 7 by Archbishop Valentine Mokiwa of the Anglican Church of Tanzania. “Someone was saying, ‘You’ve made a contribution here,”‘ Canon Mukasa told the Anglican Journal. Ω
