First, allow me to thank each of you in the Diocese of Central New York for your warm welcome! In my short time working with the Diocese as your new Communications Director, each and every person whom I’ve met has been kind, gracious and welcoming and I could not be more thankful to be part of such a loving Diocese! It’s exciting to join in your good work here.
Part of my role as Communications Director is to tell the stories of Episcopalians and Episcopal communities in CNY and, by doing so, to celebrate each of you! Your parishes and ministries are beautiful examples of people walking the Way of Love in community. Celebrating you and your good work on our website, in The Messenger, and on our social media channels helps to spread the love and joy of Christ across Central New York and beyond, but I need your help to do that!
I hope that you – whether you’re a lay member, staff member, or clergyperson – will reach out to me to share the good work you’re doing (or just to say hi!). Here are five ways you can contact me:
Got photos or videos of your parish? Send ‘em my way through this form! I’d love to be able to highlight your parish with visuals, especially when you come up on the diocesan cycle of prayer.
You’re always welcome and encouraged to tag the Diocese in your parish’s social media content. Across all major social media platforms, you can find us at @cnyepiscopal.
The best way for me to help celebrate you and tell your stories is for you and I to meet. You can set up a time on my calendar to chat at this link.
Email works, too! Click here to send me an email.
It is my hope that sharing parish stories with me so that I can share and celebrate them widely will become second nature to everyone in our diocese. Let’s share, receive, and celebrate each other’s stories as the holy gifts they are!
Grace and peace,
Rachel Ravellette, Communications Director
