Diocese of Michigan Consecration RSVP & Accomodation Information

Volunteer for the Consecration! – Singers needed

Thank you for all who have signed up to volunteer for the consecration! We have had a tremendous response, and all positions are filled, though we are still looking for more choir members. Please click below to sign up for the choir!

Childcare Reservation

Childcare will be provided during the consecration ceremony for children ages 3 – 8. There is no cost for childcare, but reservations are required. Please bring toys and snacks or a bagged lunch for your child.

Vestments Donations

The Transitions Committee believe that it would be a lovely gesture for the people and congregations of our diocese to honor our Bishop-elect by contributing funds so that she can be gifted with sets of vestments in red and in a purple & blue shade. Each set will include a cope, mitre, chasuble and stole. Any funds collected exceeding the cost of the red and purple sets of vestments will be added to the pool of contributions from family and friends of the Bishop-elect to be used for any other vestments or Episcopal appointments that she may need.
