245th Diocesan Convention
Sat, November 13, 2021
We’re recovering — and we’re also preparing for renewal. The theme for our Convention is from Luke’s Gospel, chapter 17, verse 19b: “Your Faith Has Made You Whole.” This theme was selected out of the recognition of the amount of healing and reconciling we are in need of in the desire to bring forward God’s Reign.
Date and Location of the Main Part of the Convention
The main part of Convention is scheduled to be held on Saturday, November 13 at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine.
We are planning for a safe, in-person gathering of all the voting delegates of the Diocese. The convention will be livestreamed for all other people who are interested.
All voting – for candidates, resolutions, and the 2022 Budget – will take place in-person on November 13.
The Convention Eucharist will occur at 11:00 a.m. in the Cathedral. Again, the service will be livestreamed with in-person participation limited to attendees, subject to safety considerations.
Convention Roll-Out Meetings
There will also be four Convention Roll-Out Meetings which will also be official parts of Convention. They are scheduled as follows:
- October 6 – Episcopal Futures
- October 13 – The Budget 2022
- October 20 – Creation Care
- October 27 – Reparations
Each of these meetings will be on a Wednesday evening, from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m., and will provide information as we prepare for November 13, as well as time for questions and answers.
