The Most Rev. Royal U. Grote, Jr.
August 16, 1946 - November 24, 2016
Our most gracious Lord called our Presiding Bishop, The Most Rev. Royal Grote, Jr., to his eternal home in the early morning hours of Thanksgiving Day. He peacefully departed this life in his sleep. The memorial service was held on December 13th at Church of the Holy Communion (Pro-Cathedral of the Diocese of Mid-America). A video recording of the service is available on the website of Holy Communion.
The Rt. Rev. Ray R. Sutton, Vice-President of the Reformed Episcopal Church and Bishop Coadjutor of the Diocese of Mid-America, will assume responsibilities as President of the Reformed Episcopal Church and Bishop Ordinary of the Diocese of Mid-America.
The Diamond Anniversary Spiritual Enrichment Conference was held in Williamsburg, VA. September 30 - October 2. Deaconess Teresa Johnson (pictured) of St. James Anglican Church, Memphis, TN was the keynote speaker and addressed the theme of the Conference - "Consolation and Good Hope through Grace" - which is based on the 2016-2017 Women's Devotional Book which Deaconess Teresa authored.
In addition, our Presiding Bishop, The Most Rev. Royal U. Grote, joined the conference for this very special occasion and delivered the Anniversary Celebratory Message during the Sunday closing worship service.

The Women of the Church also held their 2016 Women’s Day Project Luncheon in May. The goal for this year’s project is to raise $7,500 to assist in repairing and renovating the recently acquired property to be used as Holy Trinity Anglican Church and a Retreat Center in Silver Springs, New Mexico. We solicit your generous financial and prayerful support of the project through the 2016 Women’s Day Project Offering.
Offerings for the project may be mailed to Mrs. Diane Wright, 65 Harrison Drive, Berkeley Heights, NJ 07922. For your convenience, you may also send your offering electronically through GoFundMe. Please be aware that electronic offerings will be assessed an 8% administrative fee, thus the Committee’s preferred method of receiving offerings is via check or money order made payable to the Committee on Women’s Ministry.
