Special Synod Preparation Seminars

Special Synod Preparation Seminars

Every one is invited but Synod and Alternate Delegates are especially encouraged to attend one of the regional seminars on the proposed changes to Canon 2 (Vacancy in the Office of Diocesan Bishop) & Canon 3 (Coadjutor or Suffragan Bishop).

The seminars will begin at the times listed below. No registration is required. Those attending are reminded that refreshments will not be provided. Please bring your own beverage or snack if desired.

Primary changes to the Canons include the development of an Episcopal Election Committee to oversee the election process, and a number of small changes to clarify procedures and aid an Electoral Synod in discernment. The complete texts of the proposed documents are available below in .PDF format.
