The Reverend Canon Mpho Tutu van Furth is a preacher, teacher, writer and retreat facilitator, and an Episcopal priest. Shortly after her marriage to Marceline van Furth in 2016, she handed in her license to serve in the Diocese of Saldanha Bay because the Anglican church in South Africa does not permit it’s priests to marry same-sex partners. Tutu van Furth is the daughter of anti-apartheid activists Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu and Leah Tutu. She was the founding executive director of the Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation. Ms. Tutu van Furth lives in the Netherlands.
