Participants have completed a two-year course in developing their leadership skills in a program that helps clergy and lay leaders transform their congregations by making them stronger, healthier, more deeply rooted in Anglican Spirituality, more responsive to God and more effective in their communities.
These participants have worked on projects that included implementing a communication and tracking database, developing a Christian Formation program for adults and children, incorporating the arts, particularly liturgical dance into worship, expanding the parish’s web presence, and delivering a program recognizing black scientists for Black History Month.
This year’s graduates include:
The Rev. Canon Richard Visconti, Mark LaSorsa, and Bruce Cash from Caroline Church, Setauket.
Jastina Carter from St. Albans, St. Albans.
The Rev. Dr. Carver Israel and Adrian Simmons from St. Philips, Brooklyn.
The Rev. Eddie Alleyne, Carmen Lloyd, and Jacqueline Mason from Church of the Advent, Westbury.
Lisa Chiara and Sarah Hughes from Church of the Ascension, Rockville Center.
The Rev. Conor Alexander, St. Francis, Diocese of Southern Virginia
Additional congratulations are due to the Rev. Karen Davis-Lawson and the Rev. Kevin Morris who have completed a two-year internship and the additional training required to become DCDI Trainers.
