When: July 30, 2022, at 4 p.m.
Where: St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, 1932 East State Hwy 14., Ozark, MO 65721
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 (and dry!)
The church buildings will be open for anyone who wants to enjoy fellowship in the comfort of air conditioned spaces.
Please join us for the Southern Deanery picnic at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Ozark at 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 30. 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 that end, we ask that interested participants register their plans to join so we can plan accordingly. RSVP via the link below.
