Booklet of Synod Reports

Our Diocesan Synod was a great success due to the advance planning of Deacon Merrill Perkins and St. Matthias Church in Mystic, Connecticut. It is a tribute to Deacon Merrill and his small congregation, as well as a reminder to us all that even the smallest parishes can make an enormous contribution to God's Holy Church. Indeed, it is a reminder that every Christian can make a great contribution when the work is done in the spirit of Christian mission. Thanks to St. Matthias from a very grateful diocese.

Many thanks to all who contributed to our Twenty-Second diocesan synod.

The synod Mass was held in the meetinghouse at Olde Mystick Village, the chapel that is used by St. Matthias.
The meetinghouse is less that a quarter of a mile from the hotel where we held the business meetings.
Because it was so close - and the weather delightful - many people chose to walk to and from the church.
It was a lovely setting for our worship.

...synod would simply not be synod without the talents of Bishop George Langberg. His work within both the Standing Committee and the synod itself is invariably supportive, his counsel wise and thoughtful. But his musical talents are truly exceptional. Many thanks to him for singing a wide variety of musical numbers (including one very popular - but unmentionable - tune).
