All parishes in the diocese must complete the form linked below. We ask that clergy or senior wardens complete this form for your parish. We know this is a lot of information. Your participation will help us to communicate with you in the best way possible by keeping our diocesan database up-to-date and accurate. 

We are also asking ALL clergy to complete this form for our records.

Women's Ordination Celebration

The Episcopal Church Women is partnering with the Cathedral of All Souls to host a special celebration in honor of the 50th anniversary of women's ordination in The Episcopal Church. 

On Friday, July 19, the cathedral will host a screening of The Philadelphia Eleven, a documentary about the women who challenged patriarchy, enduring harassment and threats in 1974 to become priests in the Episcopal Church. The Rev. Dn. Kelsey Davis will talk about the making of the film. 

On Saturday, July 20, All Souls will hold a special Eucharist with the Rev. Carter Heyward speaking. Please stick around after the service for a special reception, fellowship, and a short video about the women priests of our diocese. 

RSVP for the Saturday event to Diane Mance by July 10 so we can get a headcount for lunch, mancediane40@bellsouth.net or 828-275-2972.
