OVERVIEW: The Spouse's of the Episcopal Bishops of the United State of America have an organization which includes a email list-serve. We also have a spouses-only meeting once every three years. During March 17-21, 2004 we met in the Dominican Republic as guests of the Diocese of the Dominical Republic. These meeting are for the mutual support of each other in recognition that we have a unique life style in that when our spouses were elected bishop, many of us are actually taken out of a "church community" and often have moved to a new location. We find that our mutual support of each other is a healthy and strenghening component of our lives.

By Ira Leidel: This time in the Dominican Republic our theme was, 'The World among Us!' It was such an honor to be welcomed into the Dominican Republic, by Milagros and her husband, and given insights into their culture and an opportunity to see things we would not see if we were not the partners of bishops. The "uncommon gentleness" and caring surrounded us the entire time it the Dominican Republic.
