Sunday, April 25th
During the season of Easter, members of the Diocese of East Carolina are invited to participate in a prayerful process of discerning mission priorities for our life together. 

This process will be centered in reflection on our Baptismal Covenant and will engage participants in three simple conversations. Participants will be invited to offer their feedback to the Executive Council of the Diocese, the group of leaders who will be responsible for establishing mission priorities for the next period of time in our life together.

A Call to Serve

Many things have changed because of this pandemic. We have learned to show our love for those we do not know by wearing masks and adhering to physical distancing rules. We have learned to live with the reality that we are all potentially propagators and victims of a microscopic virus that is capable of turning a world of 7.6 billion people upside down when loosed. In light of all of the people lost, and with the mass immunization in the foreseeable future, how will we use the newly rediscovered freedom that we took for granted most of our lives? Whom do we feel called to meet, and how do we feel called to serve in order to discover the gifts God may have in store?

Given the blessing of over seven hundred thousand Spanish-speakers in our state, the Spanish-Language ministries in the Diocese of East Carolina are putting a call out to those who may feel moved to serve on the Spanish-Language Commission. To serve, one does not have to know Spanish. To serve, one simply has to have a passion to proclaim God’s love and a curiosity to see what God is doing amongst our Spanish-speaking neighbors to enrich our congregations.

If, after prayer and discernment, you feel God is calling to serve on the Spanish-Language Ministry Commission, please contact The Rev. Frederick Clarkson by calling (713) 392-7725 or emailing him at Fclarkson@diocese-eastcarolina.org.
