The Rt. Rev. Brian Prior, bishop of Minnesota, June 28 presented the Episcopal Camps and Conference Centers’ Hero of Camping Ministry Award to the Rt. Rev. Gary Lillibridge, bishop of West Texas, and his wife, Mrs. Catherine Lillibridge.
And in a delightful twist at the end of his presentation to the Lillibridges, Prior also gave Canon Peter Bergstrom a Hero of Camping Ministry Award. Bergstrom retires this year as executive director of ECCC, an organization that advocates for Episcopal camps and retreat centers throughout the church.
