Epiphany Message from the Western Jurisdiction College of Bishops

As we welcome the three new bishops of the Western Jurisdiction, the new College of Bishops offers a short Epiphany message to share in local churches during worship service or online. The video features Bishops Karen Oliveto of the Mountain Sky Conference, Sally Dyck of the California-Nevada Conference, Dottie Escobedo-Frank of the California-Pacific Conference, Carlo Rapanut of the Desert Southwest Conference, and Cedrick Bridgeforth of the Greater Northwest Episcopal Area.
