General Convention and its role in the life of The Episcopal Church

The Episcopal Church’s General Convention will meet for the 81st time  this year, from June 23- 28 in Louisville, KY.

Read all about General Convention in this document provided by freelance reporter Melodie Woerman and Cynde Bimbi, director of communications and public relations for the Episcopal Church in Delaware which looks at three questions:

  1. What is General Convention?
  2. What does it do?
  3. Why does it matter?’

John Hennessy, the president of our deputation, offers more information about the legislative themes of #GC81 on our blog.

If you want to follow along closely, know that sessions will be livestreamed, with links available closer to its start date in late June!
