Retiring bishop visits local church


The Right Reverend Brian Seage, Bishop of Mississippi, is retiring and is making his final visits to Episcopal churches around the state.

On Sunday, November 19, he visited St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Kosciusko where he led the morning worship service. Following the service, the parishioners of St. Matthew’s hosted a special lunch honoring Bishop Seage.

The Bishop also visited the newest addition to St. Matthew’s property – a sign inscribed with the Beatitudes, placed in front of the church near the street adjacent to Jason Niles Park. The church believes the Beatitudes convey the very essence of what Christ taught and lived. Bishop Seage praised the church for this action and posed for a group picture on location.

A new bishop will be elected at the Mississippi Diocese’s annual meeting in early 2024.

Bishop Seage and his wife, Kyle, also a priest, will make their new home in Northern California after spending over twenty years in Mississippi.
