Dear Friends,

Congratulations to our host – the Chairman (Mr. Samuel Abdullai), Officers and Members of LECUSA – Minnesota Chapter, for the grand success of LECUSA - 12th Annual Gathering (April 21-23, 2017)! LECUSA National Executives are sincerely grateful to the Rt. Rev. Brian N. Prior, Bishop of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota, for his participation and support during our 12th Gathering. LECUSA expresses gratitude to the Priest-In-Charge, Rector, Clergy, Wardens and Members of the St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota and the Church of the Epiphany (Episcopal), Plymouth, Minnesota, respectively, for providing their buildings/facilities as venues for our worship, deliberations and fellowship. LECUSA extends special thanks and appreciation to our Presider and Preacher (Bishop Brian Prior) at the Opening Eucharist; Keynote Speaker (Rev. Ranjit Matthews) at the Benefit dinner. LECUSA also extends special thanks to our Guest Preacher (Rev. Canon Dr. Herman Browne) at the Closing Eucharist, the Presider (Rev. John Mitchell), at the Closing Eucharist, and finally, the Officiant and Homilist (the Rev. Abeoseh Flemister and Rev. Dr. D. Wellington Bright, Sr.) at the Morning Prayer, respectively. We are deeply grateful to our Presenters, Guests and all participants at the LECUSA - 12th Annual Gathering. LECUSA extends special recognition and thanks to Mrs. Theresa Witherspoon and her team for the meals and services received throughout the Gathering. Our Gathering recognized all first time attendees and was delighted to have Mr. Karsor Dennis, representing Liberian Episcopalians from Indianapolis, Indiana. Once again, we congratulate our three distinguished Honorees and the three Episcopal Parishes in Minnesota that were awarded recognition for their support to LECUSA during our Ebola project in 2014/15.

For your information, LECUSA is donating $1000.00 to Cuttington University, for the purchase of chairs for students. Effective 2017, LECUSA will partner with Partners-In- Ministry-In-Liberia (PIMIL) and donate $500.00 each year, for five years (a total of $2500.00) to support Ebola Orphans in Liberia. In 2017, LECUSA will donate $2500.00 towards School repairs in the Episcopal Church of Liberia. LECUSA will send a delegation to the Episcopal Church of Liberia Diocesan Convention in February 2018. Moving forward with our relationship and partnership with the Episcopal Church of Liberia, a strategic committee, headed by Brother Gerald F. B. Cooper was constituted to study all aspects of our past, present and future engagements with the ECL and make recommendations to the Executive Committee. Please note that the 12th Gathering voted to have all LECUSA members pay $100 as an Annual Membership due. This takes effect in April 2018. Meanwhile, we encourage LECUSA members, clergy and laity to support LECUSA by paying their 2017 membership dues: Active clergy: $100, Retired clergy: $50 and Laity: $50. Online payment is done at: www.lecusa.net or mail check/Money Order (LECUSA), c/o Mr. David Hanson, Financial Secretary at: 32 Knoll Drive, Blackwood, NJ 08012. Blessings to all!

Finally, we express our regrets and pray for those who could not attend the 12th Annual Gathering due to circumstances beyond their control. Our next Gathering will be held on April 6-8, 2018 in Northern Virginia, at the St. David’s Episcopal Church, Ashburn and St. Anne’s Episcopal Church, Reston. Please mark your calendars and make plans to attend.
