Please note page 3 in the resource material. If your resolution intends to change a point in the constitution or canons of the Diocese, it is handled through the Committee on Constitution and Canons, and cannot be submitted directly to Convention. The procedure is spelled out on that page, as specified in the Constitution and Canons of the Diocese of Central Pennsylvania.
For questions, please contact Canon Alexis Guszick, with any resolution questions that you may have and she will forward the question to the Resolutions Committee. They will try to help you submit a resolution that does exactly what you intend for it to accomplish.
