By The Very Rev. Keith Emerson, St. Paul's, Suffolk; ERD Diocesan Coordinator
As Diocesan Coordinator for Episcopal Relief & Development, I am seeking to build a network of parish representatives appointed by their rectors to promote this ministry at the congregational level. Parish Representatives will work directly with me, receiving:
- Frequent diocesan updates
- Important news items sent by the Episcopal Relief & Development staff
- Reminders of important events or dates
- Examples of best practices from other Parish Representatives.
Parish Representatives are encouraged to visit the Episcopal Relief & Development web site weekly and to stay current with Episcopal Relief & Development's ongoing work through its social media platforms--Facebook, Twitter and its blog. Armed with information, a Parish Representative meets with his/her parish's clergy to map out a plan to promote Episcopal Relief & Development on a regular basis.
I am asking diocesan clergy to identify a Parish Representative in the congregation(s) where you serve and to share that person's contact information with me. Please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or to call me at 757-539-2478.
