Campers at Camp Webb Learn about Caring for Creation

Last week's theme at Camp Webb was "All Things Bright and Beautiful." The campers used the creation story as an inspiration to talk about caring for our creation.
We had 53 kids attend Camp Webb last week! Bishop Miller visited camp Friday and, as is his custom, led the Eucharist on the last night of camp. He brought back drawings that campers drew showing parts of the creation story.

Upcoming Ordination: TJ Humphrey

TJ Humphrey Will Be Ordained to Priesthood June 22

In the Diocese of Milwaukee, ordination certificates for both priests and deacons are prepared much as they have been for many years — the certificate is prepared by a calligrapher, then wax is heated and the Bishop's official seal is affixed with the episcopal ring. This time-honored practice took place once again at Nicholson House yesterday to ready TJ Humphrey's certificate for Saturday.

On Saturday, June 22, at 10 a.m., the Rt. Rev. Steven Andrew Miller will ordain Tyler Jason (TJ) Humphrey to the Sacred Order of Priests at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Beloit, Wisconsin. A reception will follow. All members of the diocese are invited to attend the ordination service.

TJ Humphrey from Nashotah House was among a group of 56 Episcopal seminarians selected to attend this year’s Preaching Excellence Program at the Diocese of Virginia’s Roslyn Retreat Center in Richmond, VA. The week-long intensive program to hone preaching skills was led by a Faculty that included Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, former Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, Bishop Neil Alexander, Dean of The University of the South School of Theology (“Sewanee”), Bishop Chip Stokes of New Jersey, Professor Carolyn Sharp of Yale Divinity School, and a select group of seasoned parish rectors. The event is held annually in spring under the umbrella of the Episcopal Preaching Foundation ( whose mission is to encourage excellence in preaching throughout the Episcopal Church.

A Day of Action for Episcopalians United Against Gun Violence

Today our partners at Brady are holding a day of action to encourage senators to act. Bishop Miller and Episcopalians United Against Gun Violence encourage you to take part in this day of action with Brady.

The Background Check Expansion Act pending in the Senate (S. 42) expands background checks to cover all gun transactions with limited exceptions. In February, the House of Representatives passed a companion bill, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act (H.R. 8). But in the 114 days since then the Senate has failed even to hold a debate.

Please contact your senators today and encourage them to support S. 42. Contact information is here.

Alternately, you may text S42 to 877-877 to contact your senators and urge them to support S.42, the Background Check Expansion Act.
