Vocations Ministry 2017 Report

For 2017 the Vocations Ministry area presented a two-day workshop immediately following the May 1st Synod meeting.  We invited The Rev. David T. Gortner, Ph.D. to present to us some of the current trends in the Episcopal Church especially in the areas of discernment.  The program was a follow-up to a similar program presented the previous year.  Feedback forms were collected; and because of the feedback, we will present another workshop in 2019.  We have decided to not make a presentation in 2018 so that the gathering may focus our energies towards General Convention.  My goals for this year will be to further discover and discern how this ministry area may better serve the needs of the dioceses and congregations in the province, with the ultimate goal being the identification of a topic and speaker for our 2019 workshop.

Respectfully submitted.
The Rev. Canon Patrick A. Collins
