[Episcopal News Service] An 'Episcopal Gathering to Challenge the Epidemic of Violence' was held April 9-11 in the midwestern state of Oklahoma. The event was meant to help Episcopalians renew their commitment to the Gospel call, to make peace in a world of violence, and to “reclaim their role in society as workers for nonviolence and peace.” At an April 10 news conference, Episcopal Presiding Bishop, The Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori said that the gathering was about “encouraging the world to pay attention to what we believe is the gospel about the reign of God” that describes a “world where people live in peace because there is justice.”

[Episcopal News Service] The remains of the two most iconic symbols of Holy Trinity Cathedral in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, — its murals and its bells — are entombed today on the cathedral grounds awaiting resurrection. Episcopalians have an opportunity on the fourth anniversary of the earthquake that devastated wide swaths of the country, to hasten that resurrection. Already, there is new life in other parts of the diocese’s ministries. Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori has called on the church to “pray and give” in a special 'anniversary' offering to help the Diocese of Haiti rebuild Holy Trinity Cathedral. ...Jefferts Schori said in her invitation that “rebuilding the cathedral offers hope not only to Episcopalians but to the nation as a whole – a sign that God is present, that God continues to create out of dust, and that God abides in the spirit of his people.”

The Convention of the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe took place at St. Paul's-Within-the-Walls, Rome, Italy, October 17-20, 2013.
