Meet the Communications Team!
The Episcopal Church in Delaware is committed to a broad range of communications, using up-to-date technology and various communication tools to reach out to Delaware Episcopalians and our neighbors. The diocese publishes several digital communications with options to download, as well as opportunities to connect via social media, such as Facebook and Twitter. The diocesan communication team is made up of Cynde Bimbi, Director of Communications and graphic design; Lola Russell, Editorial Assistant; Marie Smith, Copy Editor; and Danny Schweers, photographer. The team works with an eye toward evangelism and stretching their reach more deeply into social media, spreading the word about what Delaware Episcopalians are doing at the diocesan and parish levels. The way the team communicates will change as technology advances, but what they communicate will not. The message will be the same even as the medium changes. Below are the three primary communications medias for the diocese:
- The Net
This is the diocesan weekly eNewsletter that is published every Wednesday and includes diocesan news, announcements from our parishes and the wider church, as well as community and ministry posts. Special editions are published periodically.
- Diocesan Website
This website is a complete resource tool for all diocesan news. You will find continuous, updated information about the Episcopal Church in Delaware, events, and programs as well as news from the Episcopal Church. Many resources for lay and clergy can be found on the website.
- Delaware Communion
This is an online magazine distributed bi-monthly. The magazine is posted to the the diocesan website, distributed to all churches via email, and posted in the weekly eNewsletter, The Net. Special editions are published periodically. The following are supplemental communication resources:

This eNewsletter is published several times, August through February, providing relevant information and updates for the annual diocesan convention. These publications will include the first introduction of the keynote speaker, resolution guidelines and deadlines, nomination information for diocesan offices, candidate announcements, registration information, and convention results.
