York-Credit Valley Events

New YCV Area Social Justice Officer

Bishop Jenny is pleased to announce the appointment of the Rev. Claudette Taylor as the new Social Justice Officer for York-Credit Valley, beginning July 1, 2020. Deacon Taylor will continue to animate and collaborate with Area parishes as they connect social justice with their faith and mission and effectively respond to the call to become agents for positive change in their communities.

We are grateful to the Rev. Don Beyers, who is concluding a two-year term in the role, for his work in maintaining and building on the strong foundation of social justice, outreach and advocacy in the Area.
