A weekly update bulletin from the desk of The Rev. Dr. Dee Wellington Bright, LECUSA CHAIRMAN 

The Sudden Passing of Sister Elaine Dunn

Elaine Dunn--We have received news of the sudden passing of Sister Elaine Dunn, who was a life long member of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Monrovia. This sad event occurred in Liberia this morning. So sudden was this incidence that it is still sending shock-waves throughout our LECUSA community. Please stay tuned as more information on plans for her home-going services unfold. Meanwhile, we ask your prayers for the family.
May the Soul of Elaine Dunn
rest in God's Eternal Peace.

Your Prayers are still Requested for our Members in California

A few days ago, we requested your prayers for our LECUSA members in California in the wake of the wild fire ravaging the state. Prayers are particularly requested for Fr. Christian C. Harding, Mother Hawa Bainda and other members of LECUSA that you may know in California.
In separate phone conversations that I had with each of them, they were safe at the time but still requested our prayer for them and all Californians.

Calvary's 100th Anniversary

Congratulations to Fr. Victor King on the celebration of the 100th Anniversary celebration of his parish. Fr. King has only been at Calvary Episcopal Church for a year but he is truly providing great leadership to this congregation. The Church anniversary was well attended and executed with great success. Please continue to keep Fr. King and his congregation in your prayers.

Mother Kathleen Collins' Home-going Services

We like to reiterate our thanks to all of our members (lay and clergy) who attended the home-going services of Mother Kathleen Collins. LECUSA had an impressive presence for which we are thankful in paying our final respects in a unified fashion to the life of a person who contributed so much to the church. It was a memorable occasion. For those who did not attend, the family is truly thankful for your prayers.

We Extend Welcome to Rev. Enid Cole

The Rev. Enid Cole: is our newest clergy. A few months ago, Rev. Cole was ordained to the ministry of Vocational Deacons in the Episcopal. Even though she has been a member of LECUSA in a lay person capacity, she is now a clergy member of the organization. Rev. Cole has consented to serve on one of our major National Committees to be announced soon. We extend a warm welcome to her ministry as a cleric.


Chapter Meetings: I am currently making rounds of visits to various LECUSA Chapters and groups. These visits are happening through teleconferences. My initial visit was with the Georgia Chapter followed by the Minnesota Chapter. We had an encouraging engagement which led to the Georgia chapter providing an updated roster of their growing membership. That roster has been incorporated into our mailing list.
My meeting with the Minnesota Chapter was also quite beneficial. I communicated some of the upcoming events that national is contemplating and got first hand info on some of the events that the Minnesota chapter is considering.
Next, I look forward to meeting with the Maryland and the Rhode Island groups soon.


NATIONAL RAFFLE: Please treat this as an advance information of the fact that plans are in the making for a major raffle to be held during our 2020 Reunion in Maryland. That raffle looks to putting forth some major attractive prizes.This raffle draw is likely to be the precursor of the Proposed Capital Campaign. Please look forward to final information on this plan and expect the raffle tickets to be out soon.
