When: August 7, 2022, at 2 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Where: Church of the Good Shepherd, 4947 NE Chouteau Dr., Kansas City, MO 64119
When Bishop Bruce was seated in her cathedra on the feast of the Epiphany, there was no reception for our bishop provisional to meet the many Episcopalians from across our diocese because of the skyrocketing COVID-19 infection rates. This summer, each deanery is hosting host a picnic with Bishop Bruce as the honored guest, in hopes of celebrating her ministry among us. These picnics will also serve as a time of fellowship — a reminder that we are one church in West Missouri.
Enjoy the cool
There are shaded areas, plenty of shade trees, and a water slide to enjoy outside. The church buildings will be open for anyone who wants to enjoy fellowship in the comfort of its air-conditioned spaces.
Please join us for the Northwest-Metro picnic at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Kansas City at 2 p.m. on Sunday, August 7. The Deanery will provide hotdogs, hamburgers, and condiments, and asks that those attending bring sides and desserts, as each is able. One hope for this event is that as many Episcopalians as possible from across the deanery might gather to connect, so please plan to join us. To help us ensure we have enough food and refreshments for everyone please RSVP by Thursday, August 4.
