Dear Members of the Diocese of Rhode Island,
I write to you from our home in
on a beautiful spring day. The window near my desk is open and birds fill the air with song. New Hampshire
This trip helped me get to know you and it allowed me to see what it is that God has given me that I have to offer you as your bishop. God has blessed me with experiences that match what you seek in a leader. In rural
God has shaped me into a visionary leader who builds collaborative teams, welcomes change, is peaceful in the midst of conflict, prayerful and decisive in strategy, dependent upon Jesus, and enjoys the blessings of life.
Thank you for the generosity of your prayers as you faithfully prepare for the election of your 13th Bishop. I look forward to meeting you on May 12.
The Reverend Cathy H George
