Updated: here is the ad.
Letter from Anne Rudig below:
November 19, 2009
An ad focusing on the welcoming nature of The Episcopal Church will run in the November 20 edition of USA Today, receiving national exposure.
The ad, in various sizes, will be made available to dioceses, congregations and provinces from The Episcopal Church Office of Communication.
Centering on "The Episcopal Church Welcomes You", the ad works locally and nationally. The ad is also available in Spanish. The materials will be made available to you on our web site tomorrow.
Our goal is to herald and share our message of "The Episcopal Church Welcomes You", and the copy delves into our identity, our core beliefs, and our heritage.
The ads will be available to dioceses, congregations and provinces at no cost. Additionally, space is provided in the ad for customization of church and web site address. We encourage you to place these ads in your local media outlets.
This is the first in a series of materials that will be made available as an overall communication strategy for The Episcopal Church is developed. I will keep you posted as new initiatives are available.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions.
