From the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth:
The Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth reorganized on Feb. 7. As we near the first 100 days since then, it is a good time to review events.
The diocese is healthy and growing. Since Bp. Gulick has been in office, fifty new Episcopalians have joined us, either through confirmation, reception or baptism.
Fifteen of the new Episcopalians have come to the church in the displaced parishes—St. Stephen’s Hurst, Parker County Episcopalians, and St. Alban’s, Arlington. The rest came into the church at All Saints, Trinity, and St. Luke’s in the Meadow, all Fort Worth parishes.
On Sunday May 17, Bp. Gulick will receive one adult from the Roman communion and baptize a baby at All Saints/Good Shepherd in Wichita Falls.
Bp. Gulick also blessed St Luke’s Community Garden, a project which will provide fresh, organic fruit and vegetables to families and individuals in the parish and the neighborhood. St. Luke’s in the Meadow also participates in the Food Share America food co-op program, which negotiates discounts of up to 40% off the retail cost of food.
Victoria Prescott headed up a committee that organized the lecture and book signing by acclaimed author Diana Butler Bass, cohosted by Brite Divinity School. Her committee also produced the supremely successful diocesan Lenten series, Manifesting the Baptismal Covenant.
