Past Issues

FALL 2015

The fourth issue of the Diocesan Magazine focuses on the twin themes of service and leadership. You will read in the pages of the magazine about some of the Deacons of our diocese, servant ministers whose call is to simply share the love of Christ with all, particularly the poor, weak, sick, and lonely.  You will also read about Youth Ministry in our diocese, and hear from the new Chaplain at the Episcopal University Center at Ruge Hall, The Rev. Brian Smith. You will learn more about the ongoing development of the our new Bishop's Institute for Ministry & Leadership, as written by the Rector, The Rev. Dr. Douglas Dupree. As Bishop Howard says in his opening letter, "The twin themes of service and relationship echo much of what the Holy Father taught us during his visit to us, and I hear echoes of his message from all those featured in this issue of the Diocesan."
