Bishop's Day for Senior Wardens
Bishop's Day is an annual opportunity for Wardens.



The office of Senior Warden comes with no specific training, yet has unique demands. A good relationship with the rector and understanding of the parish are essential in maintaining a healthy congregation.

Bishop's Day for Senior Wardens, offered annually in March, is designed for Senior Wardens from all parishes and is an excellent training opportunity for new Senior Wardens. Led by the Bishop, assisted by senior diocesan staff, this workshop includes:

  • Discussion of issues and concerns particular to the office
  • Best practices
  • How to develop a relationship with the rector
  • Opportunities to have conversations with other Senior Wardens
  • Opportunities for one-on-one time with the Bishop
Watch the weekly eNews or contact the Diocesan Office for date of next Bishop's Day.
