The Rt. Rev. Deon Johnson was ordained June 13, 2020, as the Eleventh Bishop of the Diocese of Missouri. One of the bishop's duties is to regularly visit all the parishes and missions of the diocese.
At these visitations, the bishop preaches and presides; meets with the vestry, chapter, or bishop's committee; and often visits or teaches during forum or formation time. Many congregations schedule baptisms, confirmations, dedications, or special blessings during his visit.
Visitations are scheduled with the Bishop's executive assistant, Jillian Smith.

When the Bishop is visiting, a special collection is taken during the Offertory. The Offices of the Bishop send envelopes and half-page bulletin inserts for this offering.
