Together in Mission



Published once per year in November, Together in Mission was created in 2008 to better share the work of our diocesan family members and to serve as a tool through which those otherwise unfamiliar with us might come to know of our mission. Stories range from coverage of world-wide ministry work to local congregation news, regular columns from the Bishop, Canon to the Ordinary, and in depth articles covering timely topics, such as stewardship, total ministry, and more. This publication has been discontinued. Archived copies are found to the left.

Cost to Produce

Prior to publishing a print magazine, the Diocese produced a monthly newspaper, called "The Missionary," which was approximately $1.50 per piece to produce and was delivered to individuals by mail, further adding to the cost both by way of postage and staff time in managing address changes.

Together in Mission, however, despite being full color and printed on a semigloss paper stock, costs just 89 cents per piece to produce. Additionally, the print magazine is now distributed in person at Diocesan Convention, saving on mailing cost. Congregations then share copies with parishioners, local community events, in newcomer packets and more. And if that weren't enough, we have taken additional steps to assure the publication leaves only minimal carbon footprint. Each issue is printed in biodegradable inks on fully recyclable paper, and is posted online for electronic circulation and storage.


In its brief time with us, Together in Mission has already received special recognition from the MarCom Communications Award Committee and the International Academy of Visual Arts for outstanding print excellence. Click on "Awards" on the right to view details.
