Today, Bishop Fisher had the privilege of meeting The Rev. Dr. Browne, president of Cuttington University in Liberia. Dr. Browne is visiting the Liberian community in Worcester this week.
Dr. Browne is the son of the late Bishop George Browne, 10th Bishop of the Episcopal Church of Liberia and first Archbishop of the Province of West Africa in the Anglican Church. Dr. Browne is a Cuttington graduate and ordained to the priesthood in the Episcopal Church of Liberia. His postgraduate education was in England. He was serving as the Dean of the Episcopal Cathedral in Monrovia when he was elected president of Cuttington University.
A man of deep faith, Browne voluntarily quarantined himself and his wife during the Ebola crisis in 2014. NPR documented the events that led to this decision, the impact the Ebola crisis had on families throughout the nation and the joyful relief of being spared the diagnosis.
During his stay in Western Massachusetts, Dr. Browne is being hosted by the Rev. John Edgar Freeman and his wife, Dr. Deborah Harmon Hines. Prior to visiting Worcester, Dr. Browne met with the Global Mission Partnerships Office at the Episcopal Church Center in New York and with friends of Cuttington at Trinity Wall Street. He will return to New York this weekend to preach at St. Bartholomew.
