Opportunities to meet with our diocesan deputations
All in Eastern and Western Michigan are invited to participate in upcoming online gatherings before and after this summer’s General Convention.
The General Convention is the decision-making body of The Episcopal Church. Composed of the House of Deputies and the House of Bishops, the convention gathers every three years (in non-pandemic times) to take up the business of the church — debating and acting on resolutions, worshiping and praying together, and reflecting on and preparing for ministry in the church in the long-term. The 80th General Convention, delayed due to the ongoing pandemic, will take place in Baltimore this July in a modified format (shorter and smaller than usual).
Our two deputations have been meeting and preparing together over the last several months. As they prepare for the work they were elected to do, they invite all in our dioceses to spend time with them before and after the General Convention to learn more about this important piece of our overall governance and to share local concerns around our churchwide work.
Please read below for dates, general topics, and to RSVP for our Zoom meetings. We hope you will join us!
