Diocesan Convention

Convention Change for the Better


     St. Mary's has been sending a representative and an alternate to the Diocesan Councils/Conventions for over thirty years.  This year, our Junior Warden went as the alternate in January of 2016, but will attend the November 4 Council as our representative.  Another vestry member will  attend as an alternate.  Next year, that alternate will become the representative accompanied by a new alternate, selected from among the Parish or Vestry.  This provides ample opportunities to more parishioners to participate on the Diocesan level and generates more enthusiasm and greater communication with the parish about the Convention, its resolutions, presentations and reflective remarks.
