There’s a ton of exciting stuff going on in the Diocese of Washington these days. To make it easy for you to access the information you need, when you need it, diocesan staff offers a variety of ways to stay connected.
Here you can sign up for our e-newsletters and follow us on social media. You can also get up to speed on our latest news or explore upcoming events, offerings and services going on around the diocese.
And because connection isn’t only about linking people to information, but connecting people to people, you can access the diocesan staff directory from here, too.
The diocese has four unique newsletters. You can sign up for all of them or just the ones that best fit your interests.
The Bulletin e-Newsletter
The Bulletin is the email newsletter of the diocese. Every other week, it informs readers about what’s happening in and around the diocese and the wider church, with a mix of feature stories, videos, news, event listings, and the occasional message from Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde.
Bishop Mariann’s Reflections
Every other week, Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde offers her reflections on spiritual growth, social justice, and Jesus’ Way of Love.
The School for Christian Faith and Leadership e-Newsletter
Once a month, the School for Christian Faith and Leadership publishes a newsletter with information about upcoming offerings.
Faith Formation News e-Newsletter
Sign up for emails sent the second Tuesday of the month to stay informed about formation opportunities in the diocese, upcoming events, and nifty resources.
