News from the Deanery
Saturday May 9 at St. Mary’s, Elk Grove – new date!!!
Our Capital Deanery Spring Convocation will be on Saturday May 9 – note the date change. We moved the date from April because of schedule conflicts.
The agenda will be the same:
8:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m – with registration and refreshments
9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. – the meeting
11:30 a.m. – followed by a picnic.
For the meeting time, we will gather in interest/affinity groups in these areas of ministry:
- outreach/social justice
- parent spirituality
- church administration
- pastoral care giving
- small group resources and strategy
- lifelong Christian formation
- creative liturgy
The goal for these interest groups is to have sharing of ideas and resources and possible development of collaborative ministries. We hope that some interest groups will continue to meet on their own.
Please bring side dishes or desserts to share for the picnic. The deanery will provide hot dogs and hamburgers to grill, and St. Mary’s will provide drinks. St. Mary’s has a large outdoor area to gather for the picnic.
