Diocesan communications is looking for four to six people to contribute ideas as part of a Creativity Exchange.

The exchange is a new thing we are doing to explore communications through our gifts of art, poetry, writing, photography, videography, podcasting, you name it.

We will plan to meet four times per year, for a half-day workshop. We will likely have an inaugural, in-person meeting, with subsequent meetings to take place virtually on Zoom. This will be a chance to brainstorm story ideas, and different methods of sharing those stories.

There are many ways to tell our stories. Currently, the Edmonton diocese communicates across various digital and print channels. We are active on social media (Facebook, Instagram and X), share news and events on our website,, and curate events and stories for our weekly e-newsletter, Synod Scene.

We also publish The Messenger, a publication of the dioceses of Athabasca and Edmonton, 10 times a year. The Messenger will soon launch on the digital network.

We want to connect with passionate storytellers, no professional experience is necessary. If interested, please get in touch with Margaret Glidden by email at, or call the Synod Office at 780-439-7344.

We will form our Creativity Exchange early in the new year.
