Story Highlights

All members of congregations in the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth have begun receiving “Common Purpose,” the diocesan publication mailed to homes six times each year.

“Common Purpose” was initiated by Bishop Rayford High, with the first edition – a “convention special edition” – distributed at the November 2013 diocesan convention held in Wichita Falls. It will be mailed each year in January, March, May, July, September, and November. In addition, bulk copies will be provided to each congregation for distribution in their neighborhoods, to visitors, and in outreach efforts.
