Interests: This Blog is intended to share information about events and resources available in our province. We're working on fulfilling General Convention Resolutions regarding Anti-Racism and Gender Equality. Our fifteen network leaders are called into a church wide leadership role on behalf of their diocesan networks in the province. This group volunteers time and skills, and provides discernment and planning for vital ministries. The Province convenes, resources, and supports the networks in the mission program department of the Episcopal Church. Please let me know if we can be helpful in furthering your ministry by facilitating connections with people and resources. Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or if you're interested in learning more about the province.
