Mutual Ministry Goals Community Meetings

with 1 Comment

An Invitation from Dean Thomason


Dear friends,

Come create our new way forward!

Earlier this year the Vestry forged a key document—our Mutual Ministry Goals—which are designed to inform and guide our work as a community. These three goals center upon the work of justice, creation care, and intergenerational ministry as we plot a course of lifelong spiritual formation for every person in this cathedral community. They are intended to touch every aspect of our common life.

So important are these that the Vestry has restructured its Standing Committees to include these three scopes, and every ministry group is being asked to embrace these goals and reflect on the work in light of them. I write today to encourage each household, and each person, to embrace them in your life as well.

To that end, and to learn more about the goals and action items arising from them, we have community meetings planned in the coming weeks via Zoom. You are welcome to attend any or all; I encourage each person who claims Saint Mark’s as your spiritual home to attend at least one of these. Here is the schedule:

This is important work; it is paradigm-shifting work that will form us, and with God’s help, will transform us to be “light, salt, and leaven” for one another and the world. The world needs such a Church in these extraordinary times. It is the extraordinary work to which we are called. I hope you join in it with faithful commitment. I am,

Gratefully yours,

The Very Reverend Steven L. Thomason
Dean and Rector
