On Tuesday night, October 4, 2016 there was a Pre-Synod Tri-Deanery meeting hosted by The Very Rev. Andy Ainley at Grace Church, Galesburg. The Deaneries present were Grace, Peoria, and Rock Island. There was an overwhelming turnout.
Our Canon to the Ordinary, Fr. Jim Fosdick, facilitated the meeting and shared his and the Bishop’s heart for the diocese. Everyone present felt more informed and better educated than when they arrived.
Additional Pre-Synod Deanery meetings were also scheduled for St. John’s Deanery on October 3rd and non-geographic Deaneries on October 6th. If you’d like to attend this meeting scheduled for tonight, please email Ann McCarthy at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Excitement is building for a wonderful Synod this year.
