It is with great joy that we announce that the Rt. Rev. Catherine Waynick has been elected Bishop Provisional of the Episcopal Diocese of Eastern Michigan by the 23rd Diocesan Convention.
We are excited to be taking this next step in our diocesan transition and are thrilled to be working with Bishop Waynick as our companion and pastor along the way.
In this position, Bishop Waynick will work with us half-time for one year. Her time will be flexible though generally present with us two weeks per month. You can reach her by phone at the diocesan office, 877-752-6020, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please join us in celebration and in prayer for our diocese and for our bishop:
O God, by your grace you have called us in this Diocese to a goodly fellowship of faith. Bless our Bishop, Cate, and other clergy, and all our people. Grant that your Word may be truly preached and truly heard, your Sacraments faithfully administered and faithfully received. By your Spirit, fashion our lives according to the example of your Son, and grant that we may show the power of your love to all among whom we live; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Thanks be to God!
