Thomas Indian School Book Study
Jan 25 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
On Monday evenings at 7 p.m. from January 25 to February 15, people from across the partnership will gather online to discuss “The Thomas Indian School and the ‘Irredeemable’ Children of New York,” a book that examines the history of the school that the State of New York operated on the Cattaraugus Indian Reservation from 1875 to 1957, and some of the history of Indigenous people in our region. “Although the school was in New York, the history presented in the book extends beyond state boundaries and offers insight on systemic issues,” says Canon Twila Smith, who will lead the discussion.
The book is available in print and e-book formats. To prepare for the disusssion, participants can watch the PBS documentary Dawnland, about the removal of Native American children from their families. The documentary was featured in the partnership’s Sacred Ground course, which was the inspiration for the book study. To learn more and sign up, email Canon Smith.

Feb 20 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
On February 20 from 9 a.m. to noon, all newly elected and continuing wardens in the partnership dioceses are invited to attend A Warden’s Conference, a new online event. Participants will dig into what it means to be a congregational warden, exploring the roles, ministry, resources and shared experiences of wardens and honoring wardens’ charge to serve worshipping communities and to support clergy.
The agenda will include worship with Bishop Sean; presentations on the canonical role of wardens, including working with clergy, finance, and building and grounds; COVID-era challenges; and small group conversations with other wardens.
Registration information will be available in January.
