by David Madison, Diocesan Campus Ministry

On October 30, Bishop Rayford High and the Rev. David Madison were notified by Sam McDonald, director of mission for The Episcopal Church, that the diocese has been awarded a $3,500 Program Grant. The diocese is eligible to apply for a grant next year as well. The Rev. Madison said, “We applied for it to supplement our current campus ministry efforts at UT – Arlington and Tarleton State University in Stephenville, and to fund a start-up ministry at TCU.”

Currently there are Wednesday student gatherings at Trinity, Fort Worth, led by the Rev. Andrew Wright. A portion of the funds will be used for a retreat for college students, coordinated by leaders and students associated with campus ministry in the diocese.
