Bishop Hughes To Meet with Lay Members

Thursday, August 20
Bishop Carlye J. Hughes

In May and early June, Bishop Hughes hosted Zoom gatherings with all diocesan congregations, grouped into eight Regional Ministry Networks. For the Summer Regional Zoom meetings, the Bishop has asked Canon Margo Clark to engage an expert on mental health topics, depression in particular, so prevalent during this time of sustained trauma due to the pandemic.  On Thursday, August 20 at 6pm a Zoom Conference is scheduled.  Login information will be shared via email.

Considerations for In-Person Worship

This document was compiled by Churchwarden Patti Walsh on behalf of the Worship and Program Committee in planning for the journey forward to in-person worship and gatherings; lots of things to consider.  The document was presented and discussed at our State of the Church meeting held on Sunday, June 28 at 10:30am.

The Journey Forward

As we begin the journey forward and discuss returning to in-person worship and gatherings, our Bishop, the Right Rev. Carlye J. Hughes, offers some important thoughts: "In-person worship will require all of us, clergy and laity alike, to prioritize the needs of others over our own. It is not simply our own safety we watch over, is it the safety of all those we interact with at home, church, work, and school."  Click here for more info.
