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.

Holy Week 2020: Stay Connected

During the first Sunday in Lent (March 1) I asked the question, “What will be different?”  It was my way to remind us to do something intentional for this season when we focus on looking inward.  I had no idea, at the time, that on the second Sunday in Lent (March 8) we would be forced to discourage hugs and handshakes, and on the third Sunday (March 15) we would be “fasting from public worship.”  [Click here or photo to read more.]

Prayer for a Pandemic

Prayer for a Pandemic, by Cameron Bellm
May we who are merely inconvenienced
     Remember those whose lives are at stake.
May we who have no risk factors
     Remember those most vulnerable.
May we who have the luxury of working from home
     Remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent.

Lent Madness 2020

lent madness

What is it?  Lent Madness began in 2010 as the brainchild of the Rev. Tim Schenck (Rector at St. John the Evangelist in Hingham, MA). In seeking a fun, engaging way for people to learn about the men and women comprising the Church’s Calendar of Saints, Tim came up with this unique Lenten devotion.
