The diocesan communications office is preparing to publish an extensive profile of Bishop Stephen D. Parkes. It will cover his childhood through his adult life, highlighting his ordination as a priest, his many ministries, and his ordination as Bishop of Savannah on September 23. The commemorative magazine is scheduled to be published on October 1 and will be sent to everyone who receives the Southern Cross. If you live outside the diocese or if you would like to order additional copies, orders may be placed here.
This issue will be printed on high-quality glossy paper, as was the nationally award-winning issue published nine years ago for Bishop Gregory J. Hartmayer, OFM Conv. (See the previous edition here.)
Various sponsorship levels are available to show support and welcome Bishop Parkes to the Diocese of Savannah. Individuals, parishes, groups, professionals, and corporations are invited to participate. Sponsors will be highlighted in a special section of the magazine. In addition, all sponsors will receive a special thank you gift!
Please go to diosav.org/support and choose your donation level to support this commemorative publication.
Remember: read the Southern Cross and put Faith in your opinions.
