OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS 

 

Position Available:

The Diocesan Office is seeking to fill the part-time position of Bishop's Secretary.  This position is a two-day a week secretarial position in the Diocesan Office.  Applicants must have completed high school and had some secretarial experience.  Excellent communication skills (including word processing) and an ability to organize and prioritize tasks is preferred.  A complete job description is available by sending an email message to the Diocese Resumes can be sent to this email address.   All respondents are thanked for their interest but only those selected for an interview will be contacted.


New Diocesan Website:

The Diocese is in the final stages of developing a new website that is expected to be launched in September.  If possible, it would be very helpful to have new pictures of parish church buildings and parish clergy to be displayed on the new website.  Pictures should be sent to the website development team at the Diocesan Office.  Pictures of clergy should be in portrait orientation, with a resolution of at least 1 megapixel (e.g. 768 x 1024).  Pictures of church buildings should be in landscape (16 x 9) format, also with a resolution of at least 1 megapixel (e.g. 1280 x 720).  Most recent cell phones have cameras that take photos at higher resolutions than 1 megapixel so photos with those cameras will be fine for the website.  Questions about the requirements for the photos can be sent to the same email address above.
