The Vergers' Guild of the Episcopal Church has launched a new campaign called "got vergers?" for 2012.
"got vergers?" is a simple question that might help to explain the phenomenal growth that the Vergers' Guild has experienced in its twenty-four year history. Last year, the organization passed the one thousand member mark.
"We continue to see enthusiasm and support from parishes and clergy across the country who have discovered how vergers help organize and facilitate worship activities in the Episcopal Church," said Margaret McLarty, President of the Guild. "The answer to this question increasingly is YES! When otherwise, we try to communicate more about our exciting and vibrant ministry and how we might be of service."
"got vergers?" will also be the resounding theme of the Verger's Guild presence at General Convention in July 2012 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Join us at booth #713 in the Convention Center Exhibit Hall.
The Vergers' Guild Shop has also launched a new "got vergers?" department with bumper stickers and shirts to help spread the word about the ministry of the verger.
