Episcopal Church Women Province VI Meeting
Dear Women of Province VI,
You are invited to meet the members of the National Episcopal Church Women Board on June 24, 2017 at Church of the Advent in Farmington, MN. We will be celebrating the Eucharist and then the church members will serve us lunch. After lunch there will be time to meet the Board, ask questions, and discuss any concerns you have. Later, we will be traveling to Faribault, MN for a tour of the Cathedral of Our Merciful Saviour, the oldest cathedral in Minnesota, and the first building in the Episcopal Church constructed as a cathedral. Our tour will be conducted by retired Archdeacon Ben Scott. You are welcome to join us for the tour which will last about an hour.
Mother Elaine Barber, the priest at Church of the Advent, has been most helpful in the planning of this day. The church needs to know how many guests to prepare for, so please let me know as soon as you can if you are attending.
Farmington is 29 miles from Minneapolis. The church’s address is 412 Oak St, Farmington, MN 55024

The National Board of Episcopal Church Women meets nine times in its three-year term, once in each province. At this meeting, we take one day to meet and greet women from the province who would like to visit with us. We offer lunch, a time to talk and ask questions, and then we celebrate the Eucharist.
This year's Provine VI meeting will be at Mt. Olivet Retreat Center near Farmington, MN. On June 24, 2017. Church of the Advent in Farmington has offered to host us for lunch and Eucharist.
