There's Still Time for Nominations

We are still seeking nominations for elected offices and submissions for offices nominated and appointed by the Bishop. This year, we've worked to try to make sure that our nominations page is as clear as possible in spelling out what leadership roles in each office would entail.

If you have not checked out the nominations page, you're invited to take a moment to do so. All info about open positions and nominations submitted thus far can be found here .
Convention Livestream

During Diocesan Convention, Bishop Skirving's address and Mary Parmer's keynote will both be livestreamed on our Facebook page . The specific times for each will be shared on social media in the coming days, so be sure to stay tuned.
