Parish Administrators' Day, November 6 at St. Matthias, Summerton

The Diocesan staff is eager to help you get your church running smoothly administratively, and Parish Administrators' Day is a great place to start.  We'll have information on health and pension plans, explain how to prepare for the Bishop's visit and how remarriage requests work. You'll get help in filling out the new parochial report questionnaire and hear about property insurance, Safeguarding God's Children and get an update on the litigation. We'll even have helpful hints on how you can get your parish's news in front of the entire diocese. This will be a fun day of fellowship and information with plenty of time for Questions & Answers.

Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. and the workshops will run from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. with a break for lunch (which will be provided.)

What's happening with Diocesan Women's Ministries?

Women praying during Bible studyOur council members (listed here), thought it was time to let you know what we’ve been up to and the next steps we believe God is calling us to. There have been questions as to when our next women’s retreat will be. Our next women’s retreat is in its planning and praying stage at this time. Having stated that, bear with us as we briefly try to explain what we mean!

The transformed Diocesan Women’s Ministries (DWM) council is finally walking away from the planning table and stepping out into what God has called us to do.  We are stepping away from traditional business-style meetings and meeting women where they are. We believe the council needs to take time and visit each church in the diocese.  We would like to meet with the clergy and with women’s ministry leaders and find out what’s available for women of all ages in each church and community.  We also want to personally discuss our new vision and mission for the DWM and explain that, with all our hearts, we are here to serve you.
