DismissalInformation regarding Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s Visit to our dioceseOn 8/26/21, we came to the mutual decision to move our Pastoral Visit with Bishop Curry from October 22-24, 2021 to June 10-12, 2022.  This shift in dates is in response to the rising infection rates of the COVID-19 virus and the difficulty in creating a safe environment for all of us to worship, pray and learn together. The Delta variant is posing some new challenges with break-through infections and we want to protect the least among us, including our children and aged.

For questions regarding Diocesan Convention, please contact Canon Alexis Guszick.
