Bishop's Committee Parishioner Liaison: Every week there will be an assigned member of the Bishop's Committee to serve as a Parishioner Liaison.

The liaisons will bring all comments to the monthly meeting of the Bishop's Committee to be addressed as appropriate. This week’s Parishioner Liaison is Bob Cheatham
Fr. Harold Knight’s Birthday: On July 26th, Fr. Harold Knight will turn 105!!!

There will be a basket in Lion’s Den to collect the cards.
Episcopal Night at Chase Field: The Arizona Diamondbacks invite all members of The Episcopal Diocese of Arizona along with their family and friends to an exciting division rivalry as the D-backs take on the San Francisco Giants on Friday, August 25 at 6:40 p.m.! New this year: we're all sitting together in the same section, so everyone will have more of an opportunity to chat with fellow Episcopalians and Bishop and Laura Smith! Seating Option: $22 - Lower Level Bleachers (section 141) (these seats do have backs).
