One Church One School
One Church One School is an initiative that encourages and supports Diocesan parishes to be salt, light and leaven in their communities. Specifically, One Church One School exists to promote partnerships between churches in the Diocese of Dallas and public schools (or private schools with needs) in order to support efforts in achieiving excellence in education. The Episcopal Community Service Network believes that the success of students can be tremendously improved by the involvement of churches as partners with schools to provide support and to enhance the quality of education through tutoring, mentoring, teacher appreciation or other needs that may have been identified.
The goal of One Church One School is for every parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas to develop at least one partnership with a local school in order to build bridges between various members of the community and the congregation of the local church. This initiative is simply about “Being” the church to our neighbor.
