Please join us for the first Mission Summit to be held in the Diocese of Easton!  Mission Summit 2020:  Invite Welcome Connect will be conducted by Mary Parmer, one of the keynote speakers from The 152nd Diocese of Easton Convention.  Mary Foster Parmer is director of Invite Welcome Connect at the Beecken Center in the School of Theology of the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. 

To each person attending the training, Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry would say, “You are about to embark on a journey of Invite Welcome Connect, a ministry designed to help Episcopalians engage in the deep work of evangelism.  How do we define evangelism?  I think Mary Parmer and her ministry of Invite Welcome Connect have given us a way forward….Mary Parmer has found a way for God to guide people in sharing their stories in ways that are authentic and genuine.”  (Foreword, p.ix, Invite Welcome Connect book).


Bishop Santosh K. Marray has shown his commitment two-fold in providing the opportunity for as many as possible to attend this training: 

  1. The training is being provided free-of-charge – but registration is requested to provide an accurate number count for lunches and materials.
  2. The training is being held on two separate dates and in two different locations: September 25th:  St. Alban’s – Salisbury, MD; September 26th: Church of the Holy Trinity, Oxford, MD.
