Check below for some ways to participate in the consecration both now and on June 6th.

We’re all mourning not being able to be together on this momentous day. With that in mind, we’ve tried to get creative about how we can express our message of welcome to Bishop-elect Loya and feel connected to each other in the process. Here are a few ideas:

Send the Bishop-elect a Note

We’re gathering notes to be sent to Bishop-elect Loya in a creative and tangible form. Please take a few minutes and submit a short thought, hope, or prayer that you would offer to the Bishop-elect as he begins his Episcopate here in ECMN.

Send us a picture of your Watch Party

Having photos of your beautiful faces would have been a great take-away from consecration. In lieu of being able to see any of you, please take a minute to take a picture of whatever your ‘watch party’ looks like on June 6th and send it to us at

By sending us a photo, you are authorizing ECMN to post it, together with other submitted photos, online on the consecration livestream and social media.

Donate to the Consecration Offertory

For those wishing to donate to the Offertory for the Consecration of the Very Rev. Craig Loya as the 10th Bishop of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota, please do so by clicking the link below.
Funds from the offering will be designated for the Bishop’s discretionary fund, and will be used by Bishop Loya to support organizations working for racial justice and reconciliation throughout Minnesota.
