Bishop's Writing / October 2021

October 27, 2021

Dear saints,

As we prepare for our 90th Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Rochester, I invite you to read, mark and digest some of the progress we have made together. It has been an honor to serve as your bishop for nearly fourteen years, and here are some ways we have witnessed transformation as a team of Jesus' followers! It is long and quite detailed. I hope it gives you a substantive report of where we are, as we pray and prepare to transition to a new bishop. I give thanks for all the saints below and saints above. May God Bless you and yours!  

Your servant in Christ,


Episcopal Diocese of Rochester
