Massachusetts celebrates 20-year episcopate of prayerful "provacateur" Bishop Shaw

About 500 Episcopalians gathered under one of the bluest of June's skies to sing, pray and give thanks together with Bishop M. Thomas Shaw, SSJE as he prepares to retire after 20 years as the bishop of the Diocese of Massachusetts.

The June 21 celebration at Jamaica Pond in Boston was the culmination of a three-month "Season of Service and Celebration" during which parishes participated in community service projects in Shaw's honor.

Ordination and Consecration of our New Bishop

Preparations are underway for the ordination and consecration of the Rev. Alan M. Gates as the 16th bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts. Everyone is welcome at this momentous occasion in the life of the church.
