Welcomes You

Public Affairs

The Public Affairs Office provides statistics, biographies, photos, background information, and other resources to media representatives reporting on the mission and ministries of the Episcopal Church.  

 

The Toolkit:
 
The Public Affairs Office is pleased to announce a new offering for your use to help enhance your message, broaden your reach and offer tips for placements into regional, secular, and other media – both traditional and social.

It’s called The Toolkit, and it is located on the Public Affairs pages of the Episcopal Church website here.
 
The Toolkit is an aspect of  Let's Invent This Together, a variety of resources and services available through diocesan partnerships. Through these partnerships we seek to further churchwide goals and diocesan mission.
 
The goal of The Toolkit is to enable you to prepare your messages not only for your diocese but your regional area, your ecumenical partners, and beyond.

The contents of The Toolkit reflect items that are designed to make research and facilitation as problem-free as possible for. Contents include:

Catalog – a list of important topics along with any actions taken by The Episcopal Church and General Convention.

Getting started - an easy how-to for getting started in preparing materials, news releases, op-eds, etc.

Topics – topics of interest that you may want to address, whether liturgically, socially, or the hot news that people are discussing.

Regularly, we will be sending topics for your consideration that focus on items two-three months ahead, thereby allowing for ample lead time.

Take a look.  This is a living document, and as always, we are open to ideas, suggestions and area that would help you to amplify your message.
