Bishop Gregory L. Parkes, our newly appointed Bishop has voiced a desire to “get to know and to listen to the people so as to learn from and discern with them the pastoral needs of our Diocese.” To achieve this goal, Bishop Parkes will be conducting a number of “Listening Sessions” at strategically located areas throughout the Diocese.
