“Hybrid” Diocesan Convention Planned for 2021
Subject to the safety caveats to which we’ve grown accustomed, the main business of the 245th Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of New York—for which the theme this year is “Your Faith Has Made You Whole” (Luke 17:19b)—is scheduled to be conducted in person by clergy and lay delegates at the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine on Saturday, November 13. This will follow a series of four early evening online “roll-out meetings” to be conducted weekly in October, like those held so successfully in 2020. All voting—for candidates, resolutions, and the 2022 diocesan budget—will take place in person at the cathedral on November 13, with attendance restricted to voting lay and clergy delegates (the convention will be livestreamed for all others who are interested). The online informational roll-out meetings will be open to all. Details will be announced in due course by email and on the diocesan website (www.dioceseny.org).
