Diocesan Communications

The Episcopal Diocese of Arizona provides many resources to help our clergy and lay leaders build, maintain, and strengthen their congregation’s communications (including social media, newsletter, branding, and website information).

Please contact our office with questions about the publication of church-related events to a diocesan audience, concerns or questions about ways to improve your church’s communications, or to arrange a workshop in your area. Consultations can also be done via phone, e-mail, video chat, or onsite.
