Bishop Barker Preaches at D-R Diocesan Convention
In mid February Bishop Barker traveled to the Diocese of the Dominican Republic for three days. Along with bishops from other partner dioceses, including Todd Ousley of Northern Michigan and Scott Mayer from Northwest Texas, he participated in workshops and meetings, toured the diocesan seminary and traveled to see regional ministries including a church building site. Bishop Barker was also the guest preacher at the opening Eucharist of the annual diocesan convention.
“I now have a much clearer sense of how the Diocese of Nebraska supports mission and ministry in the Dominican Republic,” said Barker, “and it was a special delight to be in the DR with Bob and Ellen Snow and to witness the deep connection they’ve built over the years with the people of the diocese. I look forwarding to returning again just as soon as possible.”
The Diocese of Nebraska is fielding two mission trips to the Dominican Republic later this spring.
