Diocese of Brasilia


Here is some general information about our partnership and current work in the Diocese of Brasilia including opportunities for action in your parish. The Global Missions Commission of the Diocese of Indianapolis facilitates this partnership as well as the one with the Diocese of Bor in the global three-way relationship between Bor, Indianapolis and Brasilia and organizes and raises funds for partnership travel between the churches in Sudan and Brazil.

More information about our global mission partnerships is available at our diocesan website on the Global Missions Commision page.

PRAY

  • Pray for the people of the Diocese of Brasilia (Brazil) and their bishop, Mauricio Andrade, and the congregations of the three parishes and nine mission stations. 
  • Pray for Casa A+, the newly opened HIV/Aids hospitality center in Palmas. 
  • Pray that people who travel to hospitals and doctors for HIV treatment can enjoy rest and fellowship within a caring community. 
  • Pray for SAME, the after-school tutoring program which provides extra support for children in communities with very poor educational systems.

Pray for the people, clergy, and bishops of congregations in Indianapolis and Brasilia that we may learn more about one another, deepen friendships and listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying to each of us.

 LEARN

The Anglican Episcopal Church of Brazil is also a province of the Anglican Communion. The Most Rev’d Mauricio Andrade is the Primate of Brazil and Bishop of the Diocese of Brasilia. Mission priorities of the Diocese of Brasilia include ministry with young people, advocacy for outcasts, spiritual formation of lay members, and congregational self-sufficiency. The diocesan website,www.dab.ieab.org.br, features an English button which translates information into English.
