The Southwest District of the Episcopal Diocese of Rochester consists of several parishes in Livingston, Steuben, and Allegany Counties in New York. Fr. Eric Thompson is the current Dean of the district, with coordination and pastoral responsibilities on behalf of the Bishop. Fr. Billy Daniel of St. Michael’s, Geneseo will assume the Deanship following the expiration of Fr. Eric’s term at Diocesan Convention.
The District Council meets regularly, usually on the third Thursday of the month, except in December and August. Diocesan pre-convention and budgetary meetings also result in adjustments to the schedule. Meetings begin at 6:30PM with a potluck supper and are called to order at 7:00PM.
