Branding for the Episcopal Diocese of the Great Lakes

Dear People of the future Episcopal Diocese of the Great Lakes, 

As shared in the Joint Standing Committee’s May 20th letter to the dioceses, a “Branding” working group is one of several working groups charged with completing tasks related to the creation of our new diocese. This group is charged to develop a new visual identity for the new body, including new logo and branding and a new diocesan seal.

The Branding Working Group has already been hard at work toward this project, using the information gathered from listening and feedback sessions over the last several years as well as input and feedback from this small task force and the wider diocese. A professional graphic designer and an expert in Episcopal heraldry are working alongside us to develop a modern and functional visual identity that looks and feels aligned to who we are and our emerging mission and vision.

To that end, the working group invites all people of the new diocese to participate in a survey. Your responses will directly influence our work as it continues toward a new visual identity for the Episcopal Diocese of the Great Lakes!

Please complete the survey by June 16th.

Yours in Christ,

The Branding for the New Diocese Working Group
