What happens when you decide to merge with another parish? The Rev. Greg Syler is the rector of Ascension & St. George’s in St. Mary’s County, Maryland -- the Diocese of Washington’s newest parish, in fact: the result of a formal merger which created a mission-focused, multi-site Episcopal congregation: one church, two campuses. What is involved in a merger? What are the advantages and/or disadvantages? Could this work for you?
