Join the Rt. Rev. Mark Edington, editor of We Shall Be Changed: Questions for the Post-Pandemic Church and Bishop of The Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe, for a Zoom conversation about regathering the church.
Speak Faith is a safe environment to explore our faith and get courageous sharing it. Five group meetings will focus on the Bible, how we talk about God, Anglican history and identity, and faith and justice. In each session we’ll go deep with a guest teacher and reflection in small groups. Between sessions we’ll stay connected through prayer partnerships, personal study, and fun activities.
Join Bishop Duncan-Probe, St. Paul's Episcopal Church in downtown Syracuse, and other faith communities for a "Save Our Earth" procession on Sunday, November 14th.

Leaders from our smallest churches (average Sunday attendance of less than 25) are coming together in a Small Church Resource Group to share what works and how we’re meeting current challenges. At this gathering, we’ll be looking at Faith Development in Community: Reaching out to those whom God is calling to your congregation.
