A message from ECW President Laura L. Manigault

Dear Sisters in Christ,  
I pray that you are doing well in these challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected us all in our parishes, in one way or another.
Because of the risks associated with the pandemic, I have not been able to continue at present to carry out my objective to participate in "face to face" visits to the parishes of our Diocese. In order to stay more connected, I am requesting that if you have taken some pictures during the year, documenting ECW activities or events in which you have been diligently involved, to please send them to me so I may include them in our report for the upcoming Annual Council Meeting in February. This will better assist me in sharing your services and good work with the other parishes in the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia.
Additionally, various parish report forms are now available here. My email address is akumlovj.bfrh87@gmail.com or home address: 232 West Gilbert Street, Apt. 143, Hampton, VA 23669. Looking forward to hearing from all of you. If you have any questions you may telephone: 757-765-0083.
Thank you very much for your attention to this matter. Keep the faith, stay well, and stay safe as you carry on you work for the glory of God.
Faithfully Yours,
Laura L. Manigault
ECW President
Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia
