The pattern of my previous visitation cycles generally occurred over the course of 18 months, during which I would worship and visit with each of our 46 congregations (plus the two congregations in the Diocese of Albany where I serve as DEPO Bishop) on a Sunday. For the current cycle, which began in September, I am trying on something new. The main idea is to visit every congregation in the course of an 11-month cycle. In order to do that, I am scheduled to visit half our congregations on a Sunday and half on a weekday.
I’d like to thank clergy, lay leaders, and my assistant, Susan Kremer, for coordinating the new schedule. Now into my 16th year as your bishop, visiting the congregations and people of our diocese is by far the most wonderful part of this ministry. This comes with gratitude for the joy of being connected with you in ministry as part of the Episcopal Church in Vermont.
