Diocesan Convention is the legislative body of the diocese. Elected lay representatives from each congregation, all canonically resident clergy, and selected youth from around the diocese attend as delegates to the Convention.
During Convention each year, various diocesan officers are elected, and other key diocesan leadership positions are either elected or appointed. The Convention adopts the annual Statement of Mission and considers other matters related to the mission and operation of the diocese.
All are welcome and encouraged to attend.
