Celebrating Twenty Years of Ministry as Bishop

We began this special week by celebrating twenty years of ministry with Bishop Cate Waynick. See more in the Featured News.

For her Celebration of Ministry Bishop Cate wrote a prayer. Here is that prayer accompanied by pictures of Bishop Cate throughout her ministry as the 10th Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis.
