The AuSable Inclusion Center is a New Episcopal Community in the Diocese of Eastern Michigan seeking to officially launch in June 2024. It will provide programming for rural LGBTQ+ people and those marginalized by their economic status, organized around four pillars: social/emotional support, material support, spiritual support, and education/advocacy through both online and in-person programming. They also envision resourcing parishes in the dioceses seeking to deepen their own invitation to this population through education,
advocacy, and potential collaborations. A more detailed report on the Center and its mission is included in the 2023 Convention Booklet, on page 92.
There are projects for a wide range of gifts and talents, but volunteers with a gift for woodworking and painting would be especially helpful for accomplishing our vision for the space.
Supplies, snacks, lunch, and a killer playlist will be provided. We’ll be working from 9-5pm, come for the whole day or as long as you can!
Questions about this event? Please contact ministry developer, the Rev. Beckett Leclaire, at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
