Pre-Convention Online Meetings
CANON 3 - Attendance Announcement
It is declared to be the duty of every member of the Clergy and every Lay Delegate having a seat in the Convention to attend every meeting thereof, or send a reasonable excuse.
In order to be well prepared for our first online convention, portions of Town Hall agendas will be devoted to convention business and will replace in-person pre-convention hearings. This will include budget and resolution presentations and adequate time for questions and discussions.
All canonically resident clergy, priests in charge of congregations and registered delegates to the 201st Annual Convention of the Diocese of Maine will be included in the invitation distribution. To those submitting delegate registration forms: please make sure email addresses are unique and correct!
All preparations for our first online Convention will take place at the following Town Hall Meetings:
September 8 (Theme of Convention Announced)
September 29 (2021 Budget Presentation)
All Town Hall meetings are scheduled from 5:00pm to 6:00pm and the link to the meeting is sent the Saturday morning before the Tuesday meeting.
If you are a clergyperson canonically resident in the Diocese of Maine or priest-in-charge of a Maine congregation and are not able to attend the 201st Annual Convention of the Diocese of Maine (online), please email Canon Barbara Martin.
If you are a layperson, having been duly elected for a seat at convention, and are unable to attend, please be in touch with your priest-in-charge or, in the absence of a priest, your Senior Warden.
