From the Dean's Desk
Dear Saint Markans,

Grace and peace to you on this glorious Easter Friday! I pray this note finds you well.
Please see below ECMN's announcement from last evening regarding the sale of the 1730 Clifton Place parcel to the White Earth Nation.
While we are disappointed that Saint Mark's is not the new owner, we nonetheless rejoice that our new neighbors share in God's work of increasing hope and healing in the world -- bearing light and love in the midst of darkness and fear and calling folks back to life from the grip of death.
Their work is ours and ours theirs -- their success is ours and ours theirs. Therefore, I invite you to join me in extending your enthusiastic and heartfelt welcome to White Earth's expanded Loring Park presence, praying with me for their transition, their growth, and their flourishing.
In the name of our Risen Lord, I am yours,

The Trustees of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota are pleased to announce the sale of 1730 Clifton Place to the White Earth Nation.

Since 1995, Clifton Place has served as the office of the Bishop, along with other community services such as the Sheltering Arms Foundation, Episcopal House of Prayer, Indian Child Welfare Act legal offices, Episcopal Community Services, White Earth tribal services, Ready for Success, and as offices for several mental health professionals. Truly, Clifton Place has been an asset to the Episcopal Church in Minnesota, and we are proud that the White Earth Nation will be continuing the good work begun here by offering services to tribal members in the Twin Cities.

The Bishop and Missioners of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota will remain at 1730 Clifton Place while new office locations are explored. The Trustees continue to work to find a new home for ECMN that will be both missional and sustainable. We look forward to announcing our next steps soon.
