CANTERBURY TALES | July 21, 2022

“The mission of St. Augustine of Canterbury parish is to grow closer to Christ and one another through worship, prayer, learning and service, and to dedicate our lives to serving Christ in the world through the power of the Holy Spirit.”


As promised, here is the final report on the 80th General Convention of The Episcopal Church in Baltimore, Maryland. While The Rt. Rev. Gregory O. Brewer delivered daily video briefings from Baltimore during GC80, the diocesan team wanted to make sure that you heard from your diocesan deputation as well.

Having returned from four demanding days of responsibilities in Baltimore, deputation members from the Diocese of Central Florida gathered once more at the diocesan office in Orlando to record a video recap of their Convention efforts and experiences. This video is offered in lieu of an in-person Convention debriefing, providing an accessible and shareable report that features a summary of the work accomplished.

The GC80 video recap from your diocesan deputation is available at:

Caregivers Support Group

The Caregivers Support Group meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month (July 26), at 2 pm. If you are feeling weighed down by caregiving worries or concerns, connecting with other caregivers is great emotional support.
