The Protestant Episcopal Church in
America 1s divided Into eight mission?
ary departments, each of these corre?
sponding to the territorial divisions of
the church, and each department Is in
charge of a general secretary, appoint?
ed by the general hoard of missions of
the church. The general convention
of the church Is held once every three
years, and every year, except those
when the general convention Is held,
the general secretarlea of the mission?
ary departments call the departments
together In these meetings, known as j
missionary council*. On aeoount of j
the large territory covered by the]
Hplscopal Church In Arnerica, great'
advantage in the work of the church
has been derived from the division Into
departments. The meetings of the
missionary councils are not for legis?
lation, but for conference and advice.
One of the Important functions of the
council is the election of representa?
tives to the general board of missions.
The Sewanee Department, which is
known also a* the fourth department,
because of its geographical location,
includes fourteen of the "twenty-one
Southern dioceses which are affiliated
with the University af the South, at
Sewanee. Tenn., these being the dio?
ceses of Alabama. Atlanta South Caro?
lina. East Carolina, Xorth Carolina.
Florida, Georgia, Kentucky. Lexington.
Louisiana, Mississippi. Tennessee and
the missionary districts of Ashevllle
snd Southern Florida Rev. Robert W.
Patton, of Virginia, but whose official
duties are centred in Atlanta, is sec-^
retary at this department, and he has j
arranged the program of the council
to be held next week. Mr. 1'atton |g
recognised as one of the ablest minis
ters and one of the best informed and i
must successful workers In the interest
of missions in the Episcopal Church |
He has given to the preparation of
the program of the council the most.
careful attention, and has included I
topics covering the missionary work
of the entire church, as well as those
relating to the special problems which
concern this department more espe-1
It is probable that no one of the j
eight departments of the ?"horch has,
greater or more clearly defined prob-1
lema and duties from a missionary
point of view than is true of the 8e- I
wanee Department. This Is true be; I
I cause of the fact that In the territory
.af this department reside by far the;
largest per cent of the negroes, the!
operatives in the cotton mills and the
mountain people who are closely or:
remotely included In the home mission j
work of the Episcopal Church. It is I
estimated that within the territory of
this department there are nearly ?
?.000,00) negroes, nearly l.'iio. >00 moun- j
tain people, and many thousands of;
people who are operatives in the cot-J
ton mills of the Sooth
