Thomas J. Bickerton, Resident Bishop
We pray the virtual format of the 2021 Bishop's Convocation programming and respite allowed all of our NYAC clergy to take advantage of the time, information and resources provided to focus on self-care. To help you make this a truly restful time, on Sunday, February 14, 2021 we will offer a full Sunday Worship Service recording as a gift to our pastors and churches to be used in a manner that is most appropriate for your ministries.
On Sunday February 14, the complete video will be:

3) Made available by telephone for those who prefer to listen in on Sunday:
