The Rev. Dr. Bonnie A. Perry Elected Bishop of Michigan: A Message from Bishop Lee

Dear Friends:

I am delighted to announce that, earlier today, the Rev. Dr. Bonnie A. Perry, rector of All Saints' Episcopal Church in Chicago, was elected bishop of Michigan on the fifth ballot.

Since the day I arrived in Chicago, Bonnie has been a friend, a partner in ministry, and a catalyst for energetic, faithful ministry at All Saints' and across our diocese and the Episcopal Church. Her love of laughter, passion for justice, and extravagant belief in the power of Jesus Christ to change lives are a source of inspiration to me and countless others around the church. I rejoice with the people of Michigan, and I can say with certainty that the next chapter of their common life will be anything but dull! More.

Easter Appeal Nurtures Seeds of Transformation

In a letter asking for contributions to the Easter appeal, Bishop Lee writes, "Even—especially—in this time of transition, my staff and I are committed to proclaiming the power of the resurrection by fostering transformation in our congregations. With your support, we can do even more to support congregations where immigrants have formed faithful, burgeoning communities; to assist long-standing parishes revitalized by commitment to 21st century mission; and to encourage leaders who have pledged to practice repentance and reconciliation by facing our diocese’s legacy of slavery."
