Bishop Lee visits the 123 churches and four campus ministries in our diocese on a rotating and alternating schedule. This means he typically makes an official visit to each congregation every two to three years.

If it becomes necessary for a congregation to change the visitation date, the rector/vicar or priest-in-charge is asked to find a congregation willing to “swap” dates and then be in touch with Anne Cothran to confirm that the new dates will work with other obligations on Bishop Lee’s schedule.

2020 Diocesan-wide Confirmations

There will be a diocesan-wide liturgy for confirmation and reception in the Spring of 2020. Any of our congregations are invited to present candidates at this service:

Saturday, May 30, 2020, 11 am — postponed
St. James Cathedral
65 East Huron
Chicago, IL 60611

If your congregation is presenting candidates please contact Anne Cothran for details.
