Connecting to the Diocese


  Recognizing Ourselves as Part of the Whole


St. Mary's values the relationship with the Diocese.  Vestry members and parishioners take advantage of attending workshops on such topics as Stewardship and Capital Campaigns.  Our newsletter, The Messenger, often features upcoming events, notifying parishioners of future opportunities.  We take full advantage of the Diocesan Website to glean information on suggestions regarding planned giving and to keep abreast of all that is happening on the Diocesan level.  The Vestry discusses all proposed resolutions and offers the same information to the parish for additional input.  A parishioner is the treasurer of the Fredericksburg Region.   John L. Johnson represents the parish at the regional meetings and Erin Bartley is the alternate/.  Dr. Johnson reports  on the happenings at St. Mary's to the Region and conversely to the parish about what is happening in the Region.
