Sargent House Open House and Art Exhibit

Members of the Episcopal Diocese of El Camino Real, plus friends, family and local communities, are invited to join Bishop Mary Gray-Reeves at the 2018 open house and art exhibition on Sunday, June 24. The historic Sargent House in downtown Salinas will be open from 3-6 pm, showcasing new works from artists in the Central Coast and South Bay Area.

A special highlight of the afternoon exhibition is a selection of paintings by homeless individuals provided by First Methodist Church in Salinas.

The Sargent House is a 1896-built landmark home that now serves as the diocesan offices. It’s located at 154 Central Avenue, one block from the Steinbeck House, childhood home of famed author John Steinbeck. Light refreshments will be included.

The exhibit represents the creative passion of the artists and their vibrant creations represent a variety of art forms: oils, watercolors, photographs, weavings, sculptures and mixed media. The event is produced by the Diocesan Arts Commission, whose mission is to display the work of leading artists from the communities of our diocese.

Kelsey Davis Called as Diocesan Curator for Emerging Communities

With “great delight,” Bishop Mary Gray-Reeves has announced the calling of Kelsey Davis to be the Curator for Emerging Communities for El Camino Real. She will begin her ministry August 1 in this newly-created diocesan role.

This month Kelsey is completing her Master of Divinity at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee; she previously earned an undergraduate degree in Theology from the University of Portland, Oregon. She gained vital skills for the Curator position during her time at Vanderbilt Divinity School, serving as the Chaplain Assistant for Young Adult Ministry at St. Augustine’s Chapel and School Chapel Intern at Episcopal School of Nashville. She also brings extensive experience as a professional athlete – she was the goalkeeper coach for the US Soccer Youth National Teams and for the Tennessee Soccer Club, among other coaching roles – and has served in various ministry contexts with youth and young adults.

“Throughout my journey…. I have been drawn to various forms of emerging communities, particularly working with youth and young adults,” said Kelsey. “My experience as a lifelong athlete and coach has equipped me with skills for ministry that include: building life-giving and collaborative relationships, leadership development, facilitating culture, managing interpersonal dynamics, recruitment, coaching youth, and grit.”

Kelsey and her wife Heather will arrive in California in mid-July. Join us in prayers of joy and anticipation as Kelsey begins her El Camino Real ministry August 1!

Haiti elects Port-au-Prince cathedral dean as bishop coadjutor

Posted Jun 4, 2018

Episcopal News Service] The Ven. Joseph Kerwin Delicat, dean of Holy Trinity Cathedral in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, was elected June 2 as bishop coadjutor of the Diocese of Haiti.

The election took place at the nursing school of the Episcopal University of Haiti in Leogane, Haiti.

Pending the canonically required consent of a majority of the church’s bishops with jurisdiction and its diocesan standing committees, Delicat will succeed Bishop Jean Zaché Duracin, who is retiring after serving as bishop since 1994. The ordination and consecration is set for Jan. 5, 2019.

The election comes just more than a year after Duracin, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, Bishop Suffragan Ogé Beauvoir and the diocesan Standing Committee entered into a covenant that “seeks to address and resolve many of the issues of conflict that have been burdening the diocese.”
