As part of the Diocese of Pennsylvania commitment to building up churches, the Committee for the Congregational Life and Redevelopment will host a gathering of clergy who serve in smaller churches. The average Episcopal Church has a Sunday attendance of fewer than fifty members. It is our goal to hear the joys, struggles, and hopes of these faith communities as part of our commitment to support and empower them in their ministries and calling to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. All are welcome to attend this first gathering and the committee hopes to build bonds of partnership and support throughout the Diocese. The staff of the offices of the Diocese will be in attendance. Lunch will be provided. To register for the 9/19 event go here. Watch the Rev. Michael Ruk give an overview of the event here.
