The Diocese of Tennessee Chapter of the VGEC was formed at the 25th Annual Conference in Nashville, Tennessee on October 5, 2013.
New Diocesan Banner
The new Diocesan banner is being underwritten in part by the Diocese of Tennessee Chapter. Vergers are reaching out to their churches for contributions, with most hoping their parishes will give $100, depending on size. See the front page article and color photos in the May 2014 Connections using the link at the bottom of this page. Should your parish have an event, such as the bishop's visitation or an important anniversary, you can request to use the diocesan banner. Contact the diocesan office for further details.
