Bishop Announces Plans for Dayspring


In January 2012, the Rt. Rev. Shannon S. Johnston announced plans for Dayspring, a comprehensive, diocesan-wide initiative involving many leaders in our community as we respond to the January 10 opinion returning Episcopal properties to the Diocese. “I want to have a witness to the world, particularly the Anglican world, not just an ‘outcome’ in the court,” said Johnston. “In my view, the Diocese of Virginia is best positioned of all Episcopal dioceses to make such an epoch-shaping witness.” Henry Burt, secretary of the Diocese, also addressed the subject in his report to Council. “The question will be – always – how can the mission of this diocese and its people best be served by a building, a house, a piece of land or a fund?” said Burt. “Every layer of this diocese will and must have input into this effort.”
