[Anglican Communion News Service] A new church building has been
consecrated for an Anglican worshiping community in Cuba, some 84 years
after it was founded as a mission outpost.
The Rev. Vicente Tuzzio founded the community at Bermejas, near the Bay
of Pigs, in 1932. A year later some 48 people were confirmed by Bishop
Hiram Hulse and the following year it was recognized as an organised
mission of the Iglesia Episcopal de Cuba – the Anglican Church of Cuba.
The building, which has been supported by many churches and individuals,
has taken a year to complete. Work will continue in the coming months to
build an annex room.
Until the new building was consecrated last month, the worshiping
community at Bermejas met in a small rented space.
