Commentary on the final days of the papal visit to the USA will be forthcoming. This past week an email recounting recent events at Mercer School and extending invitations to upcoming events was dispatched widely.  If you do not receive our emails, and would like to do so, please simply send an email to us at mercerofffice@dioceseli.org with the subject line, "Subscribe me to Mercer emails."

Richard Schori, husband of Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, has published a book of his photographs and accompanying commentary by the Presiding Bishop revealing aspects of her service as Presiding Bishop over these recent years.  The book, entitled Through the Lens: a Presiding BIshop's Ministry to the World, is divided into five sections, each corresponding to one of the 'five marks of mission.'  Bishop Schori contributed reflections on each of the the five marks. Learn more about the book, available from Forward Movement and elsewhere, by clicking here.
