Survey seeks to identify language needs across Episcopal Church

Episcopal Church Public Affairs Office

The General Convention Task Force on Translation and Interpretation, formed by Resolution A024, has released a survey to help its work of developing recommendations for determining and prioritizing written materials that should be translated and meetings where interpretation should be provided within the Episcopal Church.

“The survey will help us determine strategy and set priorities to incorporate all members fully into the body of Christ,” said Bishop Lucinda Ashby, the task force chair.

The online survey is available to the entire church but is being directed to all dioceses and to those parishes that have identified that they use languages other than English in their worship, operations, and service to their communities.

The survey is available in the following languages: EnglishSpanishFrenchHaitian Creole, and Mandarin (Chinese-Traditional).

Responses to the survey should be provided no later than June 2. Follow us on social media

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
