New Diocese Website Launched

New website for the Anglican Diocese of Calgary.

Our new website has launched!

As you can see, we are still missing pictures, especially pictures of clergy and staff and pictures of parish events.

Parishes are asked to send announcements of parish events (preferably including a picture) to 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 or parish events 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.

Stewardship Resources (TENS)

The Diocese of Calgary has recently become a member of The Episcopal Network for Stewardship (TENS), an association of church leaders in the United States and Canada who “understand, practice, and proclaim God’s call to generosity”. For those who are interested, there are a number of free materials on the TENS website, including a newsletter, a blog, and selected bulletin inserts. However, as a result of the Diocese becoming a member, all parishes in the Diocese are now able to access the members-only resources that are available, including “God the Giver” annual giving materials (newsletter inserts; letters to new members, members whose giving has remained the same, and members who tithe; thank you letters; prayers of the people; and half-page reflection/discussion bulletin inserts).

Parishes that are interested in accessing all the TENS resources can contact the Diocesan Office Finance Officer for the required userid and password.
