Convention Related Reminder for Parishes

If you have not done so already, make sure your parish submits their Certificate of Delegate Election forms no later than December 31, 2020, so that we have your lay delegates' contact information. We ask that parishes make sure their Certificate of Delegate Election form be submitted on time so that your lay delegates receive registration information from us in a timely way. (You may email your certificate to Hannah Jarman at hjarman@diocese-eastcarolina.org.)

Registration for clergy and lay delegates will open the week of January 4th by email invitation.

Please be sure to remind potential delegates that they should be comfortable with today’s technology, especially the Zoom Meeting platform, and have access to reliable wi-fi.

If you didn’t receive your Certificate of Delegate Election form or have questions, please contact Hannah Jarman at hjarman@diocese-eastcarolina.org or 252-522-0885 ext. 228.

Convention registration questions should be directed to Jimi Paderick at 252-522-0885 ext. 227 or jpaderick@diocese-eastcarolina.org.
