  The Circuit Rider, a publication of the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth
January 2012• Volume 2, No. 1

The Circuit Rider rides again

Welcome to the third edition of The Circuit Rider, so christened by Bruce Coggin, long time priest of the diocese. The name resonated with Elinor Normand and me, especially after he shared the story of the Rev. W. W. Patrick, this diocese’s own circuit rider. You can read Patrick’s story in the September 2011 issue on the diocesan web site.

In this edition you will find many opportunities to join others in ministry or to develop your own. And if there is something you want to see in future issues, please let me know.

For a printable version of this newsletter, click on the "printable version" link at the top right of this page. Our hope is that parishes will download it and print it out for those members of their parishes that do not have email or Internet access.
