Open Invitation to Meet Diocesan Consultant
The Rt. Rev. David Colin Jones will visit St. Andrew’s Church, Highland Park, on Sunday, November 9 — his first Episcopal Visit to a parish since being named “Consulting” Bishop to the reorganized Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh.
Bishop Jones will preside and preach at St. Andrew’s 9 a.m. Holy Communion service and also preach at the 11 a.m. Choral Morning Prayer. He also will be the guest at a 10 a.m. "Coffee and Conversation" adult forum.
Members of the wider diocesan family are invited to meet Bishop Jones during a gathering at St. Andrew’s from 2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. Sunday. He will be speaking about his role in our diocese during this transitional period, and those attending can share their thoughts and concerns.
Bishop Jones is the Bishop Suffragan of the Diocese of Virginia, where his chief responsibility is church planting and missions. He is very experienced in tending to continuing congregations in divided dioceses, having witnessed a handful of Virginia parishes attempt to leave the Episcopal Church.
Last month, Bishop Jones was appointed by the current diocesan Standing Committee in Pittsburgh as its consultant on administration, clergy and congregational support until an Assisting Bishop is named. His consulting services includes visits such this one to St. Andrew’s.
