Sawbona! A Message to Mediator

Diocesan Life.September

I've uploaded the September edition of Diocesan Life here. It probably won't be arriving in snail mail boxes until the end of August or early September. I have uploaded each page as a unit in itself so you need download only the pages that seem of interest to you.

The cover photo is from the ordination to priesthood of Trula Louise Hollywood.

Page 2: Bishop Paul's column, Practice, Practice, Practice. "The churches -- conservative, liberal or in-between -- that actually do grow have energetic clergy who are committed to Jesus, who pray the Daily Office, and who lead by example. They visit the sick, feed the poor, and demand that the lay people in their parishes look beyond themselves. They are focused not on institutional survival or screeching ideology, but on following the Carpenter in practice. In practice."
