Recent News & Announcements

The Summer Lunch Program is going well! In addition to providing meals to all children up to age 18, on Fridays we are giving each child a book to take home to encourage reading.  We are in desperate need of books for 5th, 6th and some 7th grade readers.  Perhaps you have books from when your children were growing up or have picked them up at garage sales.  St. David’s would love to
have them. Some suggested series:

book
Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Tom Sawyer
Nancy Drew
Hardy Boys
39 Clues
Box Car Children
Lemony Snicket
Emily Windsnap

Also consider books by authors like Andrew Clements, James Patterson, Rick Riordan, Gary Paulsen.  Please don’t feel limited by the above list.  If you have books you feel would appeal to 5th, 6th or 7th grade readers, please bring them to St. David’s office as soon as possible.  There are only four more Fridays in our program and the children’s faces just light up when they receive a book to take home.

The Search Committee invites all Episcopalians to participate in one of the upcoming listening sessions to discuss your hopes, dreams and expectations for the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas and our next bishop.

Your voice is needed so we may accurately represent who we are—in all our diversity as a diocese—to the Episcopal Church and pro-spective nominees for bishop.

Participating in a listening session will help us develop a survey instrument that will be administered to clergy and laity throughout the diocese in the coming weeks and, ultimately, will help us write the narrative for the diocese’s profile. Please come!
