Advice for schoolboys hoping to progress from academies to professional rugby

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Mental toughness is perhaps one outcome, but for Taylor the emphasis is on teaching players to take responsibility for their own actions and outcomes. Of course, it is also about careful management and schoolmasters, as well as individual players, being completely aware of how programmes with an academy, school side, and other groups should marry together.“It’s about working well with academies – so we share video analysis with Leicester of their players, so we are aligned in our thinking,” Taylor says. Jamie Taylor, the director of rugby at Denstone College, who look after eight Leicester Tigers academy players and one Worcester Warriors academy prospect, believes that young players should be continually challenged if they are to take the step up to the next level.“If you do everything for them, you’re doing young academy players a disservice,” Taylor tells Rugby World. “Let’s say a player comes into a programme at the age of 13, have a really smooth path with absolutely no disappointments on their way to an academy. Then they come to a situation where they are trying to earn a first team contract (at a pro side). If they don’t get one they won’t be equipped to deal with that.“As for skills, it depends on an individual basis but we are not a school who wants to win every fixture. If you are unbeaten, that’s not tough enough and the players don’t learn anything.”Close affiliates: Tigers and Denstone have a good relationshipTaylor also explains a programme he has utilized at Denstone which looks at Psychological Characteristics for Developing Excellence (PCDEs) – a principle which he insists can be seen in literature but that is not particularly well known. To explain, he gives an example of talking players through a specific seminar on goal-setting – looking at outcome goals or process goals. Then it is about instilling in players that they must identify themselves when they have achieved a goal. Then they will review these goals periodically, possibly when we are coaching them one-on-one. Prospect: Sam Lewis of Denstone and Leicester Tigers U18 center_img TAGS: Leicester Tigers “Any schoolmaster who has academy players in their team and wants their players to progress, they have to have dialogue with these academies. The big danger is over-training on the pitch and under-training with strength and conditioning. It’s about managing progress. And absolutely, I would advise young players (who may not have a school coach so close to an academy) to seek out as much information themselves, so they know exactly how much training to do.”Jamie Taylor will be speaking at the Rugby Innovation Summit.

Here the fly-half explains the rudiments of passing…Get a grip“Passing is an absolute fundamental of the game. For those small moments where the skill-set is really required, it’s crucial to have the ability to execute properly. The biggest thing about passing is getting your grip right. If you’re going to spin-pass, you need a good, strong grip.”High elbow“For a right-to-left pass, have your right hand towards the back of the ball, left hand guiding it towards the target. The key for a motion pass is a high elbow; it’s crucial to get your elbow up as the tendency is to drop the nose of the ball.“So if passing right to left, you want a high right elbow to keep the nose up and the forward spin going. It’s where the force of the pass comes from.”Catch-and-pass“For shorter passes, you want the ball in and out of your hands as quickly as possible. In that instance, when you’ve got less time, you want to catch the ball early. The action of passing is actually a catch-and-pass, so create a target for the passer by reaching out early. “Getting the ball into and across your body is essential. What you’re focused on is the speed with which you get into the catching position and using your wrists to make that short pass.”MORE SKILLS ADVICE… Practice makes perfect“I’ve made 500,000 or more passes and I still do five or ten minutes’ practice every day, usually before a session. At Newcastle we’ll do lots of drills: quick in and out, using your wrists, trying to pass the ball, not lift it, push at the target.“For a longer pass we try to achieve as flat an arc as possible, as there is always a ‘loop’ on the ball due to its spiral. Your hands should point towards the target at the finish.”This article appeared in the November 2018 edition of Rugby World magazine.

The Exiles only had an Adam Coleman try in the second half to show they had anything to throw back at Bath.But while a lot has changed since the pandemic hit, there has not been a huge gulf between the pair when the Premiership ground to a halt.Just two points separate Bath in sixth, on 30 points, and Irish in eighth, on 28. Each side took heavy losses in their last outings – Bath lost 57-20 to Chiefs and Irish lost 39-0 to Sale – and while both teams have won three and lost three in their last six games, Irish earned 16 points from those while Bath only had 13.However, we have had an unprecedented break and plenty of personnel swaps, so form could well be irrelevant.In recent days Bath promoted former London Irish hero Neal Hatley to the role of head coach. Bath have also signed scrum-half Ben Spencer from Saracens and no-nonsense lock Will Spencer. But gone are Rhys Webb, Freddie Burns, Francois Louw and Tom Homer, with the full-back returning to Irish.The Exiles have also added a huge number of international caps to their ranks, with former Argentina skipper Agustin Creevy joining up, alongside 100-cap Wallabies lock Rob Simmons. With Ireland back-rower Sean O’Brien also raring to get torn in for London Irish, they will be optimistic of a reversal of last year’s festive flop.Bath: Anthony Watson; Samesa Rokoduguni, Jonathan Joseph, Josh Matavesi, Ruaridh McConnochie; Rhys Priestland, Ben Spencer; Lewis Boyce, Tom Dunn, Will Stuart, Josh McNally, Charlie Ewels (captain), Zach Mercer, Sam Underhill, Taulupe Faletau.Replacements: Jack Walker, Beno Obano, Christian Judge, Elliott Stooke, Josh Bayliss, Will Chudley, Cmeron Redpath, Tom De GlanvilleLondon Irish: Tom Parton; Ben Loader, Curtis Rona, Terrence Hepetema, Ollie Hassell-Collins; Paddy Jackson, Nick Phipps, Harry Elrington, Motu Matu’u, Sekope Kepu, Ben Donnell, George Nott, Matt Rogerson, Seán O’Brien (captain), Albert Tuisue.Replacements: Matt Cornish, Will Goodrick-Clarke, Ollie Hoskins, Sebastian de Chaves, Blair Cowan, Ben Meehan, Theo Brophy Clews, Matt Williams.Below we explain how to find a reliable live stream for Bath v London Irish wherever you are.How to watch Bath v London Irish from outside your countryIf you’re abroad, but still want to watch your local Premiership coverage, like Bath v London Irish, you can do so by using a VPN – Virtual Private Network.VPNs allow you to get around any geo-blocking by changing your IP address so you appear in a different location and can watch the same legal Premiership live stream you would at home.Our friends at TechRadar have tested hundreds of VPN and recommend ExpressVPN, which is easy to use, has strong security features and allows you to watch on several devices at once, including smart TVs and phones, iPads, tablets, PCs and Macs.last_img read more

Durante un debate preliminar el 5 de noviembre, el Consejo se mostró renuente de añadir un sexto punto a la lista.Sue Moxley, obispa de la Diócesis de Nueva Escocia y de la Isla del Príncipe Eduardo, presentó la resolución original (15:34) para añadir la marca. Advirtiendo que ella había asistido a las últimas tres reuniones del CCA, la obispo dijo que en cada una “las provincias que habían trabajado sistemáticamente en empeños de pacificación y en el intento de solucionar conflictos…  han dicho en todas las reuniones que necesitamos decir que esa es una marca de lo que somos como anglicanos en el mundo”.La Conferencia de las Iglesias Anglicanas en América sobre Responsabilidad y Misión Mutuas en febrero de 2009 unió su voz al llamado de la Iglesia Anglicana del Canadá por esa sexta marca.La 14ª. Reunión del CCA respaldó esa petición y Moxley dijo que desde entonces un grupo de personas había estado trabajando en [la redacción de] las palabras precisas “que fuesen aceptables a personas de una amplia variedad de representados.”Durante el primer debate el 5 de noviembre, el Consejo discutió tanto el texto de la propuesta original así como también si debía añadir una sexta marca de la misión o incluir su intención en una de las otras cinco marcas.Tony Fitchett de la Iglesia Anglicana de Aotearoa, Nueva Zelanda y Polinesia, dijo que le preocupaba añadir una sexta marca, diciendo que “se corre el riesgo de que podríamos llegar a tener tantas marcas de la misión que cesarían de tener el impacto que deben tener”.Él señaló que antes de la reunión se le acercó un sacerdote de Nueva Zelanda que quería añadir una marca de la misión relativa a la liturgia y al culto.Fitchett sugirió añadir el texto propuesto acerca de la paz y la violencia a la cuarta marca de la misión que busca transformar las estructuras sociales injustas, añadiendo que todo el concepto de las marcas de la misión se relaciona con la reconciliación.La obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori dijo que compartía las preocupaciones de Fitchett, pero sugirió añadir el [nuevo] texto a la primera marca de proclamar las Buenas Nuevas del Reino de Dios.“Es parte de la proclamación de las Buenas Nuevas del Reino de Dios”, dijo. “El Reino de Dios —por el cual oramos diariamente que venga, así en la tierra como en el cielo— es un mundo de reconciliación, de paz con justicia para todos, para toda la humanidad y toda la creación”.Resaltando que la versión del Libro de Oración Común de la Iglesia Episcopal de 1979 dice que la misión de la Iglesia es “reconciliar al mundo con Dios y a unos con otros en Cristo”  Jefferts Schori dijo “hemos enseñado por más de 30 años que la reconciliación está en el tuétano de lo que significa ser cristiano. Creo que esta labor es intrínseca a la obra de la misión”.Otros miembros sugirieron cambios a lo que Moxley  estuvo de acuerdo que era una “redacción burda” de la adición propuesta.Cuando parecía que los problemas sobre el número y la redacción se encaminaban a enviar la resolución de vuelta al comité de resoluciones, la presidenta de este último, Philippa Amable, de la Iglesia de Provincia de África Occidental, y la Rda. Gay Jennings, de la Iglesia Episcopal, preguntaron si esta reunión del CCA podía actuar en contra de una resolución aprobada por la reunión anterior.La Resolución 14.05 de la reunión del CCA de 2009 en Jamaica decía que el Consejo “respalda la petición” de las reuniones del Canadá y Costa Rica “de añadir una sexta ‘Marca de la Misión’  relativa a la paz, la transformación de los conflictos y la reconciliación a la actual lista de cinco [y] pide que el Departamento de Misión de la Oficina de la Comunión Anglicana lleve adelante este proceso e informe a la ACC-15.Jennings, que asiste a su primera reunión del CCA, preguntó si “el ACC-15 ¿debe estar de acuerdo con promover la resolución adoptada por el CCA-14, o puede esta reunión determinar algo diferente?”En es punto, el presidente del CCA, James Tengatenga, obispo de Malawi del Sur, llamó al asesor legal del Consejo, Canónigo John Rees, diciendo “necesito ayuda”.El Consejo levantó luego la sesión para almorzar el 5 de noviembre, al tiempo que Moxley invitaba a los que estuvieran interesados en reunirse después del almuerzo, y la resolución regresó al Consejo el 7 de noviembre, donde fue aprobada por unanimidad después de un pequeño debate.– La Rda.

Marshall announced July 19 that he would retire at the end of this year.In a letter to the diocesan Standing Committee, he said that he would turn over ecclesiastical authority for the diocese to the Standing Committee on Aug. 1, at which time he will begin vacation. Beginning in September, he will be on sabbatical leave for the rest of the year.“It was my long-held intention to serve you as long as the canons permit,” Marshall wrote in his letter. “Life contains surprises, however. A number of circumstances and conversations have made it very for me to continue as bishop of a diocese that I have come to love with all my heart. I will resign for the canonical reasons of ‘advanced age’ as of December 31 of this year.”Marshall, who will turn 66 on July 25, began serving the diocese as bishop in 1996. He could have served until age 72, according to Article II, Section 9 of the church’s Constitution. The bishop’s citing of ‘advanced age’ is referenced in Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution.The Rev. Canon Andrew T. Gerns, rector, Trinity Episcopal Church in Easton, Pennsylvania and president of the Blehem Standing Committee, wrote in a letter to the diocese the day after Marshall’s announcement that the news “means that we as a diocesan community will begin our own process of listening for God and each other as we discern God’s will and together decide how we will act on it. There are many questions and there is much to do.”The full diocesan press release is here.

What was probably intended as rhetoric by the While House was interpreted in central American countries as a free pass to send teenage children to the U.S. And had these children tried to stay in Mexico they would have been deported by a Mexican government that routinely deports central Americans who cross their southern border illegally. Finally, responsibility for securing our borders rests with our government, which has dismally failed to do so, thus also dooming any attempts at immigration reform or compromise during the current administration.

You are an adult who came as a refugee with your wife. This country needs good people like you. Your wife needed immediate care for childbirth and your young family needed further assistance to help you get on your feet. I’m glad you got it. My concern is for the welfare of the children & under-18 young people who are here without an adult. Some people want them taken back across the Mexican border and dumped, immediately. Dumping children across the border in the Chihuahuan and Sonoran Deserts with a sandwich and a bottle of water would be a death sentence, especially so because many do not even come from Mexico. These children need safety, basic necessities and the warmth of human kindness until they can be returned to a parent or other family member.I can’t speak for other people’s motives, but mine is for the safety and welfare of this continuing surge of children here alone.

My former wife was 9 months pregnant and my first son was born 40 hours after we came to the country.We worked our way up and raised six children. Recently, my first-born made a hateful remark about immigrants that only come to this country to join the welfare ranks. I HAD TO REMIND HIM HE IS A WELFARE CHILD, since when he was born, the hospital bill was paid for by the charity of the people of the United States. When we first arrived I had to beg for diapers at Gesu Church in Miami. I worked in a car wash ten hours a day, seven days a week for $25/wk. under a blazing Sun that caused blisters over my body and I was paidmy $25/wk check out of the tips, so I was a white slave. We had to go to a line where used clothes were passed out. The man in front me was a medical doctor, the one behind was another professional. The red necks would honk their horns while we were at the line and said derogatory remarks, telling us to go find a job instead of begging for clothes.We worked our way up rather quickly and joined the mainstream of society.Did you ever hear about the “collective unconscious”?

That we stand together in our faith that everyone, regardless of national origin, has basic common rights, including but not limited to: 1) livelihood; 2) family unity; and 3) physical and emotional safety. We witness the violation of these rights under current immigration policy, particularly in the separation of children from their parents due to unjust deportations, and in the exploitation of immigrant workers. We are deeply grieved by the violence done to families through immigration raids. We cannot in good conscience ignore such suffering and injustice.2007 Pledge of Support for the New Sanctuary Movement[9] Resolved, That we in the Episcopal Diocese of New York, commit ourselves to: 1. Support the New Sanctuary Movement and; 2. Promote the New Sanctuary Movement within our Denomination, congregations and among our other allies.I would suggest that Episcopal Church congregations take in these children and refuse to turn them over to deportation authorities.

Photo: Trish Motheral[Episcopal News Service] Sixteen boys aged 14 to 17 gathered July 6 around a map of the Americas, each writing his first name on a sticky note and placing it first next to his home country, with the majority landing on Guatemala, followed by Honduras.Then, the Rev. Susan Copley asked the teenagers to move the sticky notes to the next place they are going. Some said they would be staying with relatives in New York; others were headed to Texas, Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Maryland and California.One month earlier, on June 5, Copley and volunteers from her church began visiting the unaccompanied minors at Abbott House, a regional community-based human services agency headquartered in Irvington, New York, a small, Hudson River Valley town just south of Tarrytown, where Copley is the rector of Christ Church and San Marcos Mission.In addition to making weekly visits, where they play games with the boys and conduct an abbreviated Eucharist in Spanish, church members pray for the children and mobilize to support them. In one afternoon, its English- and Spanish-speaking congregations raised $1,000 to buy shoes for the children, some of whom arrived at Abbott House without any footwear.Not only is it about providing the children with “positive exposure to people who care about them,” by inviting different members of the Christ Church and San Marcos community, it helps to counterbalance some of the negativity that accompanies their stories, said Copley.Since early June, the record numbers of unaccompanied minors crossing the southwestern border – primarily from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador – and the associated humanitarian crisis have been in the news, with politicians shifting blame, and protestors making headlines.With the exception of unaccompanied minors from Mexico and Canada, who can be returned home immediately under a 2008 U.S. immigration law, unaccompanied minors must be taken into U.S. custody and given a deportation hearing, which can take years. An unaccompanied minor is defined as a person under the age of 18 who is separated from both parents and is not under the care of a guardian or other adult.To accommodate the influx of migrant children, the government has set up makeshift shelters at military bases and has contracted with transitional homes, like Abbott House, where children can be cared for before being released to a relative, with whom they’ll stay until they can get an immigration hearing.Abbott House provides unaccompanied minors with room and board, case management, individual counseling, medical and educational services, recreation and leisure activities, acculturation, legal services, transportation and access to religious services, before they are placed with relatives or in foster care, according to a June 4 press release.Churches respond on the borderIn a July 3 appeal to the Diocese of West Texas, Bishop Gary Lillibridge described the humanitarian needs in his diocese, particularly in the border towns of McAllen and Laredo.St. John’s Episcopal Church in McAllen, with assistance from Episcopal Relief & Development, has joined a larger effort, the McAllen Faith Community for Disaster Recovery, a group of churches and government agencies that have come together to respond to the crisis, in assisting with meals and laundry for individuals and families sheltering inside and in tents around Sacred Heart Catholic Church.St. John’s began preparing backpacks of hygienic items, with travel-size soaps, shampoos, and conditioners, a comb, a toothbrush, and other items, as well as packs of nutritional snacks, such as peanut butter crackers and cereal bars.“We will hold ‘packing parties’ at the church every Sunday and Wednesday and put together as many packs as we can, and we will assemble these packs as long as they are needed,” said the Rev. Nancy Springer, assistant rector of St. John’s.Similar efforts are taking place in Laredo, where parishioners at Christ Church are assembling backpacks, also containing hygienic and nutritional items, to deliver to the children and families flowing into their city.And in Arizona, where women and children were reportedly dropped off at bus stations in Tucson and Phoenix, the church also has joined interfaith efforts to respond.The crisis in Central America’s Northern Triangle, however, is not just about children but about adults and families as well. In recent weeks, tens of thousands of women with children and other family units fleeing the pervasive violence of Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras have arrived in Texas and Arizona, as a recent Episcopal Public Policy Network immigration advocacy update explains.“When women and children flee their homes in these numbers it signals a humanitarian crisis, not a security threat,” said Katie Conway, the Episcopal Church’s immigration and refugee policy analyst. “Episcopalians across the country have responded to this crisis with compassion and loving service and we are calling upon the president and Congress to do the same. We believe that the United States is capable of meeting this challenge without compromising our values or our safety, and without turning our backs on vulnerable mothers and children seeking peace and protection.”(On June 25, Conway, and Alexander Baumgarten, director of the Episcopal Church’s Washington, D.C.-based Office of Government Relations, submitted testimony to Congress concerning the crisis on behalf of the church.In March, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) expressed its concern for the increasing number of children crossing the border “propelled by violence, insecurity and abuse in their communities and at home,” and called on government agencies “to take action to keep children safe from human rights abuses, violence and crime, and to ensure their access to asylum and other forms of international protection.”UNHCR based its concern and its call to action on a 120-page report “Children on the Run,” based on interviews with more than 400 unaccompanied minors from Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Mexico held in federal custody. The report indicates that many of the children believed they were unsafe in their own countries and would be picked up by authorities who would evaluate their need for international protection along the way.The report also stated that many of the young people interviewed were part of “mixed migration” movements, which include both individuals in need of international protection and migrants looking for work.“It’s critical to note that the vast majority of these children may actually be asylum seekers,” said Deb Stein, director of Episcopal Migration Ministries. “To talk about deporting them back to the very dire circumstances from which they fled for safety without the opportunity to seek protection is to ignore their rights under the 1951 U.N. Refugee Convention, to which the U.S. is a signatory. This gets lost in the heated rhetoric of deporting them simply because they entered the country illegally, when in fact it is not illegal to request asylum.”Beginning in October 2011, the U.S. Government began noticing a dramatic rise in the number of unaccompanied minors from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, which by fiscal year 2013 had gone from 4,059 to 21,573. As of June 15, 2014, the number had reached 51,279 for this fiscal year. Since 2009, UNHCR has been recording an increase in asylum claims from the same three countries.Episcopal Migration Ministries, The Episcopal Church’s Justice and Advocacy Ministries, and Episcopal Relief & Development are working together to connect Episcopalians interested in creating and/or sharing information, resources, and mutual support for immigration advocacy and ministry.— Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

I believe this is a crisis of international proportions and the churches are in a position to help. The faith community crosses all borders and I believe could appeal to other countries , especially in South America to assist in giving new safe homes to these children. Surely the United States is not the only safe and charitable country in the world. I do believe we should help these children but we are having a hard time taking care of our own citizens in need. Does anyone think there is some other helpers out there that would share in this effort to help them? Could the churches assist to find other safe havens for them? Comments are closed. July 12, 2014 at 7:34 am But Nick, they are escaping horrors that we have no conception of. Why can’t we offer them protection and peace (as the Bishop said) as long as they need it? Can we really justify – laws or not – sending children back into a life-threatening and wholly horrible environment??

Photo: ACNS[Anglican Communion News Service] The Anglican Communion Office’s (ACO) director for communications has announced he is leaving after five years in post.Jan Butter came to the ACO in March 2010 from humanitarian agency World Vision International where he was head of global advocacy communications. At St. Andrew’s House he was tasked with helping the Anglican Communion and its Instruments of Communion better communicate the best of their life and mission.To that end his work has included strengthening the impact and reach of the Anglican Communion News Service; establishing the ACO’s presence on Twitter and Facebook*; helping member churches build their communications capacity; and undertaking a corporate rebrand for the ACO, including a refresh of the Compass Rose logo design.“It has been a genuine privilege to lead the ACO’s communications department and serve the Anglican Communion,” said Butter. “I believe that communicating the Gospel is at the heart of our calling as Christians and I have been delighted to see more and more Anglicans and Episcopalians able to share their stories with each other and the world.“I’m particularly pleased to have relaunched Anglican World magazine and to have moved the Anglican Communion News Service from an email service to a fully-fledged website. Also, I’m glad to be able to launch the brand new Anglican Communion website next month before I leave.“All of these tools have and will help people everywhere to have a more accurate perception of Anglican/Episcopal life and worship around the world.”Butter has worked with colleagues from other provinces to ensure members of the Anglican Communion heard from the Primates’ Meeting in Ireland, the Anglican Consultative Council in New Zealand and from the yearly Standing Committee meetings.“Perhaps my greatest joy in this role has been the opportunity to connect with and worship alongside people from every member church,” he said. “I can honestly say that the Anglican bonds of affection – the relationships between different nationalities who share faith, tradition and history – makes this Anglican Communion what it is.”Interim Secretary General, the Rev. Canon Alyson Barnett-Cowan, said, “Jan will be sorely missed, not only at the Anglican Communion Office but around the Communion. His professional skill as a communicator, combined with his layman’s passion for the Gospel, has inspired many.“He has been particularly committed to increasing the communications capacity of member churches of the Communion, and to equip young communicators with the tools they need to share inspiring and sometimes challenging stories from their many complex contexts.”Butter has accepted the position of director for global health communications with World Vision International. His last day with the Anglican Communion Office is March 18.The post of director for communication is expected to remain vacant until the new secretary general has been appointed. In the meantime, ACNS and Anglican World will continue to cover Anglican Communion news and information.

W. Frank Allen, rector, St. David’s Episcopal Church, Wayne, Pennsylvania, Diocese of Pennsylvania;The Rev. Daniel G.P. Gutierrez, canon to the ordinary, chief operating officer and chief of staff, Diocese of the Rio Grande;The Rev. John T.W. Harmon, rector, Trinity Church, Washington, D.C., Diocese of Washington;The Rev. Martha N. Macgill, rector, Emmanuel Parish of the Episcopal Church, Cumberland, Maryland, Diocese of Maryland;The Rt. Rev. Dean E. Wolfe, ninth bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas and vice-president of the House of Bishops.The announcement opens a process by which Episcopalians may petition to have other clerics added to the slate. Information on that process is here.The election is set to take place March 12 at the Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral. The person elected will be ordained and consecrated on July 16 at New Covenant Church in the Germantown area of Philadelphia.The diocese has been led since early 2013 by former Diocese of East Carolina Bishop Clifton Daniel III as its bishop provisional. Daniel resigned from his East Carolina post to work in Pennsylvania. The need for a provisional bishop arose after Pennsylvania Bishop Charles Bennison retired at the end of 2012 after an at times contentious episcopate. The Pennsylvania Standing Committee had been at odds with Bennison since the mid-2000s over concerns about how he managed the diocese’s assets and other issues.In its announcement about the five persons nominated, the Standing Committee said, “This is an exciting time for our Diocese and we are grateful for your continued discernment, prayer, and participation.“Please pray that all of us will be inspired by the Holy Spirit to discern clearly whom God is calling to be our next Bishop and to work with her/him to joyfully continue the ‘Jesus Movement’ in the Diocese of Pennsylvania.” Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector Shreveport, LA By ENS staffPosted Jan 29, 2016 Rector Tampa, FL Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET last_img read more

Chicago Bishop Jeffrey Lee to retire in 2020

Lee sent a letter to his diocese on Feb. 14 announcing his intention to step down in August 2020. He has called for the election of his successor. The text of press release about his announcement follows.Bishop Jeffrey D. Lee announced today that he will retire as bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago in August 2020, and called for the election of his successor.“When I reflect on the work we have done together, I am most grateful for our shared success in focusing the work of my staff and the diocese’s leaders on congregational vitality,” Lee wrote in a letter to the diocese. “As you have often heard me say, the only excuse for something like a diocese is to foster thriving congregations in local communities using the best data and resources we can muster. Together, through prayer and song and fierce conversations, we have accomplished that cultural shift, and it is bearing fruit across our region.”Lee was ordained in February 2008 to lead a diocese that comprises 33,000 people in more than 120 congregations northern and west central Illinois. His tenure included the reunification of the Dioceses of Chicago and Quincy and a major renovation of St. James Commons, the diocesan headquarters in downtown Chicago, that created a venue for retreats and meetings called the Nicholas Center.Under Lee, the diocese conducted an examination of the legacy of slavery in its common life, and supported the full inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and gender queer Christians in the sacramental and ministerial life of the church and policies to stem the tide of gun violence in the region and across the country. Through advocacy and personal support, members of the diocese also worked against the persecution and marginalization of immigrants and refugees.Planning for the election of Lee’s successor began last night when Bishop Todd Ousley, the Episcopal Church’s bishop for pastoral development, held a teleconference with the diocese’s Standing Committee, which will oversee the search and transition process.“In my remaining time as your bishop, I intend to do all I can to advance the excellent work of the Taskforce on Hispanic/Latino Mission and Ministry Sustainability, to forge a new partnership between the diocese and Episcopal Charities, and to attract energetic, talented clergy who want to join us in fostering vital congregations,” Lee wrote. “Finally, I hope to leave a gift for the future vitality of God’s ministry in this place by increasing the diocese’s program endowment and supporting the capacity of congregations to raise capital funds.”The Standing Committee will inform the clergy and people of the diocese about the search process that will soon begin, Lee wrote. The process typically includes the formation of search and transition committees, the development of a diocesan profile, a period of nominations, the announcement of a slate of nominees, and an election in 2020 on a date to be determined.“As we travel together toward the place where our paths will diverge, I will cherish each remaining opportunity to celebrate the sacraments with you and to pray together for a time of transition filled with hope and trust in God’s never-failing goodness,” Lee wrote.
