We're very pleased to announce that an online Community Calendar has been implemented on the diocesan website.
The Community Calendar at dioceseofnewark.org/community-events lists events that are hosted by our congregations and associated organizations, as well as local events hosted by entities of the wider Episcopal Church. Community Events are also displayed in calendar format at dioceseofnewark.org/community-calendar. Both the listing and the calendar have been added to the diocesan website's main menu under "Events."
How do I post an event to the Community Calendar?
Events can be submitted by anyone with login authority to the diocesan website.
There should be one person per congregation/organization that has this authority.
To obtain login credentials (user name and password), email a request to Nina Nicholson, Director of Communications & Technology, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: All submissions to the Community Calendar will be reviewed by Nina Nicholson or Randy Johnson before they are published.
What should I post to the Community Calendar?
Events that are open to the diocese or the general public and are unique to your congregation or organization may be added to the Community Calendar. A few examples of appropriate events are:
- Rummage sales
- Street fairs
- Art shows
- Quiet days/Retreats
- Book discussions
- Prayer vigils
Please do not post events that compete with Sunday morning worship or with other events traditionally held by most Episcopal Churches; they will not be approved. For example:
- Blessing of the Animals
- Christmas pageants
- Pancake suppers
- Standard holiday worship services
For a detailed guide on posting events to the Community Calendar, please see the Community Calendar User Guide.
