Congregational Resource Daydiocesecross

You’re invited to Congregational Resource Day for the Episcopal Diocese of MA on Saturday, October 3 from 9:30am-3:15pm at Bentley University.

There will be workshops to help develop skills and give you spiritual and practical help for joining God’s mission in the world. Congregational Resource Day is designed to give parishes a large variety of hands on-tools, practical helps, and networking support.
Bring a team from your parish with participants from the Vestry, Sunday School Teachers, Stewardship committees, Outreach and Mission committees, Youth leaders, Parish Communicators and Administrators, Confirmation Mentors, and Adult Education Committees. There is something for everyone and everyone is welcome!

Join Bishop Alan Gates and Bishop Gayle Harris during the lunch break for discussion and sharing.
