Diocesan Budget Information

“And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”

Hebrews 10:24-25


My Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Over the past nine months, the pilgrimage has allowed for listening, learning, praying and growing.  Some of the best ideas for outreach, ministry, and envisioning have come from what you shared with me during this sacred time.  For instance, the realigning of staff positions and the respective job positions are a response to the needs of our congregations.  As mentioned previously – there is no singular vision apart from our collective vision to build up the Kingdom of God.

As your Bishop, I am prayerfully committed to expanding the opportunities for both listening and input.  While the budget serves as a guideline and path in which to engage our sacred ministry, it also shapes our journey and further builds our faith community.  That makes the budget a sacred document and as such, it needs your voice, input, and prayers.

In addition to the regular diocesan hearings that occur in July and August, we are offering five times and locations to review the draft budget and provide input.

I will be at each of the hearings. Additionally, various members of the Budget Committee and staff from the Office of the Diocese will also attend.

Below is a list of the dates, times and locations of the remaining Budget Input Sessions:asdfa

I ask for your continued prayers for the budget process and those involved.

In Christ,

The Rt. Rev. Daniel G. P. Gutiérrez
XVI Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania
