Faithful, Fearless Women: A Diocesan Celebration of Women's Ministry
On June 13, 2021, The Diocese of Missouri will honor the life and ministry of Barbara Harris, the first woman bishop in the Anglican Communion. The Rt. Rev. Deon Johnson will lead a diocesan-wide worship service to celebrate Bishop Harris and all women in ministry. The event will be available online on our website and our Facebook page.
Leading up to that event, we're taking a look back at some of the founding mothers of our diocese. A special video series, Faithful, Fearless Women: A Diocesan Celebration of Women's Ministry, features just a few of the many women who built the foundation of faith on which we all stand. Each episode will be narrated by a women clergy member serving in the diocese today.
We'll be releasing the stories May 25 through June 10, every Tuesday and Thursday. You can watch them here, or on Facebook or YouTube.
