About the Diocesan Convention

The Convention is the legislative body of the Diocese and shall exercise all powers not reserved to the Bishop by the Canons or tradition, or reserved to any other entity of the Diocese. Elected lay representatives and canonically resident clergy from each parish and mission in the Diocese attend as delegates to the Convention. During the Convention, various diocesan officers are elected, and other key diocesan leadership positions are either elected or appointed as provided for by Canons. The Convention adopts the annual budget for the Diocese and considers as a body other matters germane to the mission and operation of the Diocese. All are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Information about the 37th Annual Convention (also the electing convention for the IV Bishop) to be held November 16-17, 2018 at St. George’s Episcopal Church, Germantown, will be posted as soon as info is available.
