Update on the Status of the Bishop Transition Process

The Rt. Rev. Steven A. Miller and the Standing Committee have written letters to share with the diocese. In his letter to the diocese, Bishop Miller confirmed his intention to retire at the end of 2020. After discussions and at the encouragement of Bishop Miller, Bishop Todd Ousley of the Office of Pastoral Development, and the Rev. Dr. Ann Hallisey, search consultant, the Standing Committee has adopted a new timeline for the discernment of episcopal leadership for the Diocese of Milwaukee.

Virtual Choir for Pentecost

We're planning to have a virtual choir for Pentecost Sunday and we need YOU!

All the details can be found at the link below:

We know we have lots of talented musicians in the diocese, and we'd love to have as many parishes represented as possible.

(Note: the photo is shamelessly stolen from the virtual choir from Zion Episcopal Church, Oconomowoc singing Jesus Christ is Risen Today for Easter Sunday. If you haven't seen that, I highly recommend it.

Bishop Miller and other faith leaders appear on WUWM's Lake Effect

Bishop Miller will be on WUWM's Lake Effect this morning along with Pardeep Kaleka (Interfaith Conference of Greater Milwaukee), Ahmed Quereshi (Islamic Society of Milwaukee), and Rabbi Hannah Wallick (Milwaukee Jewish Federation) to discuss how they are all encouraging social, not spiritual, distancing.

It airs today at 10 am, and their segment is slated to be first, just after the news update.
