Children & Families Ministry Leadership Meeting
December 8, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
It’s time for our quarterly gathering of leaders in Children & Families Ministry from around the diocese! Our featured speaker this quarter is Wendy Claire Barrie – author, Episcopal influencer, former FORMA board member, and now the Canon for Intergenerational Ministries at Saint Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral in Seattle. Join us Wednesday, December 8 at noon to meet and hear from Wendy and welcome her to the Diocese of Olympia! Let’s also share plans and dreams for Christmas and for 2022 as we start to (cautiously!) hatch more ambitious plans for meeting in-person.
This meeting is open to all who coordinate faith formation for children and families including staff, clergy and volunteers. Register here and we will send you a copy of Wendy’s book, Faith at Home: A Handbook for Cautiously Christian Parents, as well as the Zoom link for the meeting.
Here’s a little more about Wendy:
Wendy Claire Barrie is the author of Faith at Home: A Handbook for Cautiously Christian Parents, and is finishing up her second book, The Church Post-Sunday School: How to Be Intergenerational and Why it Matters. A writer, editor, speaker, and Christian educator, Wendy has served several Episcopal congregations on both coasts over the last 30-plus years, including All Saints Church in Pasadena, California, and Trinity Church Wall Street in lower Manhattan. She has a son, Peter, and a husband, Phil, whom she and Peter met at St. Lydia’s, a dinner church in Brooklyn, New York, and they’ve moved across the country again to Seattle, Washington, where Wendy was recently named Canon for Intergenerational Ministries at Saint Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral.
