Throughout the year 2022, the deaneries have expended the deanery grants to congregations for a variety of mission programs – feeding the hungry, improving communication, and assisting immigrant families, to name a few. In many cases, without these grants this important work would not happen.
The highlight of the year for every deanery was the picnics with Bishop Bruce. Not only did a wider swath of the diocese get to spend quality time getting to know our Bishop Provisional, but these events allowed for great fellowship between members of the various congregations who rarely have the opportunity to meet. Even high temperatures did not thwart the fun, thanks to giant waterslides, shelter from the sun, and wonderful food. Special thanks are extended to our diocesan events coordinator, Rachael Orth, for her great planning and execution of these events.
Deanery clericuses and councils met to carry on the business of the deaneries and enhance fellowship and comradery among the clergy. The opportunity to break bread with fellow ministers of the Gospel and share advice and encouragement are important aspects of these gatherings.
We look forward to more exciting activities in the new year – more picnics, celebrations, and gatherings with our brothers and sisters in Christ.
