The featured story in today's Messenger:
Dear People of Central New York:

The following letter was sent to the clergy of the Diocese on July 2nd and I felt it was time to inform the wider Diocese of the decision I and the Diocesan Board recently reached regarding the Thornfield property.  As is stated at the end of the letter, please contact me or a member of the Board if you have questions.

Bishop Skip 
The Diocesan Board and I have continued our discussions regarding the disposition of the Thornfield property and I am writing today to give you an update on where those discussions have led us. 
Since the Thornfield property was deconsecrated in June 2004, we have conducted several studies both within the Diocese and in conjunction with SUNY ESF Center for Community Design and Research to help us determine whether a new and vibrant ministry could be developed on the site.  We have looked at a number of options from all aspects of Diocesan mission and have come to the difficult conclusion that the Diocese of Central New York does not have the need or resources to support a ministry on the former Thornfield Conference Center site.  We are, therefore, beginning the process of selling the property.

The Memorial Garden was, of course, considered throughout our discussions.  It is important that a place for prayer and contemplation be accessible for the loved ones of those who are interred.  We have, therefore, determined that the best possible solution is to move the Memorial Garden to the Evergreen Cemetery in Cazenovia.  This will allow year-round access to family members and friends who wish to visit.  A closing ceremony will be held at the Memorial Garden on Wednesday, August 20th at 3:00 p.m. (rain or shine) and is open to anyone who wishes to be present for this solemn occasion.  Once the move has been completed and the new monument is in place we will again gather to offer prayers and I will send a notice to you with that date and time.

The sale of the Thornfield property is a significant event in the life of the Diocese so the Board and I will move the conversation to include other key groups to help us develop a proposal (or proposals) regarding how best to utilize the proceeds of the eventual sale to benefit the parishes and mission of the Episcopal Church in Central New York.  The proposal(s) will then be brought to Convention for input and discussion.

If you have any questions regarding the sale of the Thornfield property, please feel free to contact me or a member of the Diocesan Board.  May God's grace continue to be abundantly present to you.

Peace in Christ,
Gladstone B. Adams III
Bishop of Central New York

Two hundred years ago, on April 14, 1814,. fifteen Unadilla Valley men with the assistance of the legendary Central New York Anglican missionary, Fr. Daniel Nash, met for the purpose of holding an organizational meeting of the "first Episcopal church west of the Unadilla.
