News from the Diocese of El Camino Real

Dear ECR family and friends of Bishop Mary,

We are grieving with our Bishop following the tragic loss of her husband Michael in a bicycle accident on Saturday. Bishop Mary and her family extend the deepest gratitude for your love, prayers, and messages of support.

Celebration of Life

A celebration of the life of Michael William Reeves was held on Friday, June 27, at 5 p.m., at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Saratoga, California.


The Rt. Reverend Greg Rickel
Bishop, Episcopal Diocese of Olympia, Washington state

The Rt. Reverend Mary Douglas Glasspool
Bishop Suffragan, Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles


The Reverend Canon Robert Edwards
Rector, St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church
San Juan Capistrano, Calif.

In Loving Memory of Michael

Bishop Mary has requested that gifts be made in honor of Michael Reeves to one of the following projects:

Sargent House

The Sargent House will be the new home of The Diocese of El Camino Real. We selected the Sargent House for our new offices for many practical reasons, but also because it is a historic building in the city of Salinas, a community that struggles with gang violence and its many social issues. We pray to join others in encouraging health and healing in that community. The Sargent House is a great big, beautiful fixer-upper! Michael enjoyed nothing more than a good project that demanded his best efforts, and he would enjoy gifts in his name to make it happen.

To donate online to the Sargent House Restoration Project, click the following link: http://edecr.org/blog/donate/. Or, please send checks to The Diocese of El Camino Real at P.O. Box 1903, Monterey, CA, 93942.

Rails to Trails

The Rails to Trails organization is working to create a nationwide network of trails from former railroad lines and connect corridors to build healthier places for healthier people. A conservancy effort dedicated to safe corridors of exercise, healthy living and community is now, more than ever, a passion of ours. We invite it to become one of yours too. To learn more and to donate, visit: www.railstotrails.org.
