Respite Offer to Active Clergy:
Thanks to the generosity of Bishop Doyle and EDOT’s foundations, “Harvey-Zone” Clergy are invited to apply for a $2,000 mini-sabbatical grant, for much needed time away from active ministry. A mini-sabbatical is 2 Sundays, plus the week in between. If you serve in the Harvey Zone, you were impacted, regardless of whether you had huge personal losses. Secondary trauma is still trauma, so for your own health and renewal, as well as the health of your parish, you are encouraged to accept this gift!
Spiritual Debrief and Renewal
Harvey impacted clergy are invited to a relaxed day of Spiritual Debrief and Renewal as hurricane season begins again. We will process Harvey’s spiritual/emotional impact, consider spiritual preparation for another storm, and receive resources to prepare ourselves and our parishes for Harvey’s first anniversary. Identical gatherings will be held on Thursday, June 14th and Thursday,
July 19th in the Cathedral’s Mellinger Room. The room opens at 9:30; event begins at 10. Lunch is provided. We will conclude by 3. Wear comfortable clothing. Contact Canon Carol Petty to RSVP.
