Task Force for Provincial Affiliation
The Task Force for Provincial Affiliation was formed to design and initiate a process whose goal will be to enable the Diocese and this Convention, along with their parishes, to discern among the options available for provincial affiliation, and in Convention, decide our means of affiliation.
Goal: to explore this matter and report back to Standing Committee and Diocesan Council as well as to the Diocesan Convention itself by early 2015. Bishop Mark Lawrence has appointed one priest and one lay representative from every deanery to serve on this Task Force:
• The Very Reverend Craige Borrett, Chairman & clergy representative from W. Charleston Deanery (Diocesan Council) (pictured left)
• Mr. Bruce McDonald lay representative from W. Charleston Deanery (Diocesan Council)
• The Very Reverend Peet Dickinson, from Charleston Deanery, ( Diocesan Council)

• The Very Reverend David Thurlow, from Orangeburg Deanery (Diocesan Council)
