Meet the first female bishop to preach at the opening of the Lambeth Conference

Episcopal News Service —

When Rt. Rev. Vicentia Refiloe Kgabe received an invitation to preach at the opening of the Lambeth Conference, she thought it was a joke.

“I thought there was a wrong email in my inbox. I looked at it and I went on with my work. It was just kind of like, that was a strange email, go and read it again,” she told Episcopal News Service. “And I read it. And I laughed, and I was like, no, there’s no way. Let me say yes and then somebody will realize they made a mistake. And say, ‘no really, it was not meant for you.’”
