  • Why do we do that? Liturgy

    The Episcopal Church is a liturgical church. The use of the term liturgy has come to mean many things over the years, but in a nutshell, it essentially means two things: that all the people – clergy, liturgical ministers, choir, congregation – are participants in the worship service; and that everything we use, do, and wear in the liturgy has meaning.

  • Connecting Communities

    Connecting Communities is about connecting more deeply with God, each other, and your neighborhood; we believe it will help put legs on some things you’ve likely been wanting and studying for the last several years. More detailed information has already been sent to all clergy, wardens, and congregations and is also available through the Rev. Brad Purdom at bpurdom@dohio.org and Antoinette Taylor at ataylor@dohio.org, or ask any member of our Diocesan Connecting Communities team: Kate Gillooly, St. Luke’s, Cleveland; Alex Barton, Church of the Redeemer, Lorain; and Michelle Killin-Keith, St. Peter’s, Lakewood

  • Because it is Necessary: Supervised Visitation Supported by Episcopal Community Service Grant

    Grace Church, Sandusky is built upon a tradition of community outreach. They expanded upon this tradition in 2000 when parishioners saw a need for the facilitation of familial connections in their community and founded KinShip, an organization that provides supervised visitation and exchange services for families and children who have been separated due to divorce, child custody issues, domestic violence, or other types of family trauma.

  • Ohio and Belize Join Together in Mission

    For eight days in July, we built a community of 15 young people and five adult leaders, supported in prayer and logistics by many more. We were from seven congregations in Ohio and three in Belize. We engaged in morning and evening worship; ate, played, and worked together; and engaged with the local community of Forest Home outside the city of Punta Gorda.

  • Happening in Belize

    I found myself in a church in Belize surrounded by members of the Dioceses of Belize and Ohio sharing in each other’s understanding and love. We listened to other student leaders from Ohio and Belize give talks on prayer, the nature of reality, and Jesus Christ. We wrote positive notes to one another and placed them in personalized bags that surrounded the room. We sang and danced loud enough for the entire town to hear us. We broke bread and prayed together.
