Visitation and Confirmation Information

Bishop Lee visits the 123 churches and four campus ministries in our diocese on a rotating and alternating schedule. This means he typically makes an official visit to each congregation every two to three years.

If it becomes necessary for a congregation to change the visitation date, the rector/vicar or priest-in-charge is asked to find a congregation willing to "swap" dates and then be in touch with Anne Cothran to confirm that the new dates will work with other obligations on Bishop Lee’s schedule.
