Lucy the EpiscoBull! Lucy is a beautiful pit bull doggy belonging to a member of our staff here. We couldn’t resist sharing this shot of her in her Episcopal Dog Collar!
Over the last few weeks, as we’ve transitioned the majority of our ground shipping to FedEx ground, we’ve gotten a number of complaints about cost especially for destinations further away from our headquarters here in Atlanta. We want to apologize for these issues and let everyone know we are working on a solution that will work.
The number one complaint we are seeing is that we do not offer USPS as a shipping method. We have heard you all, and are working on ways of making USPS available. There are a number of technical issues with the United States Postal Service that currently keep our store from obtaining real-time shipping rates for the US postal service, this above all is why we do not currently offer it. We also have maintained one main shipper because it saves us on costs, important for a non-profit like ours to keep in mind, and helps our fulfillment services for Episcopal Relief & Development, United Thank Offerring, and Episcopal Church signs operate more smoothly and efficiently.
In the meantime, as we work to figure this out, if you are located in Alaska, Hawaii or another far flung destination and are experiencing prohibitive shipping costs please give us a call at 1-866-937-2772.
Thank you, and thank you for the opportunity to serve our Episcopal Church community!
Episcopal Shield and Episcopal Church stickers are here! Static Clings too!
Our booth at General Convention 2012! Come check us out and get a T-Shirt or a massive street sign. Takes many weeks to make the latter, so no squeezing into your carry on! Hope everyone has a great time out there.
Our partner site, Day1, has a few interviews from only a few months back of the Bishop-Elect of the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta. We wanted to share them with you all and help introduce you to The Very Rev. Rob Wright.
The new Bishop will be consecrated at Morehouse College and is tentatively set for October 13th, at 11am. For more information, visit the Diocesan website.

As many of you know by now The Episcopal Marketplace has partnered with The Episcopal Church as an official partner, offering high quality branded merchandise and materials for community identity and education. One of the most exciting projects we have been working on is the brand new Episcopal Church Welcomes You Sign.
Well now that we’ve been fulfilling orders for these signs for about a year and, while there have been some ups and downs, we know we have some happy customers out there with beautiful new roadsigns.
So we want you to send them to us, in picture form only of course, and let us show your sign to the world. We are excited to be working with all of you and hope we have made your church sign ordering experience a delightful one!

This month’s Friends of Episcopal Relief & Development focuses on the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta’s efforts to engage congregations and communities in the fight against malaria through the NetsforLife® Inspiration Fund. The feature especially highlights 11th-grader Adriana Embus, the winner of the 2012 World Malaria Day Make a Difference Essay Contest, who wrote about encountering malaria on a school visit to Liberia, and how it inspired her to take action and raise awareness about the deadly disease.
