The Episcopal Church in Minnesota has entered a time of Prayer and Discernment in selecting the 10th Bishop of ECMN. The Bishop’s Search Committee invites you to participate in the conversation!

Note: Please encourage all Vestry and Bishop’s Committee Members, Total/Shared Ministry Teams, Lay Members, and Confirmation Youth to attend this Special Meeting! Our voice is important in expressing our joys and blessings, longings and concerns. Mark Calendars, Come!

We are gathering people according to Mission Areas to provide a time of “Holy Listening” so that all faith communities have a voice in this search 
process. We want to hear your “joys and blessings, your longings and  concerns.” Most Mission Areas are meeting at their “MAGs” (Mission Area  Gatherings). Since our NWMA Gathering isn’t until May 17-18 ( the  information needs to be ready by June1) and our gathering is already well  under way in planning…another fun retreat at Northern Pines, Park Rapids, we are setting up a special Time of Holy Listening.

The information gathered from our Listening Sessions and the results of the survey will be combined to provide our ECMN Profile ( who we are and what we  are looking for in the next Bishop.) Thank you so much for helping. This is very important work. We want to hear every voice.
