As we move closer to our annual 178
th Diocesan Convention, which will be held at virtually (via Zoom) on Saturday, January 30 beginning at 9:30 a.m., there are items that we are highlighting for your attention.
To help you prepare for Convention, we are hosting an online Pre-Convention Meeting on Tuesday, January 19, 2021 at 7 p.m. This year we will be using Zoom which will allow you to easily view the meeting from your computer or mobile device. You will be prompted to download some software to be able to view the webinar seamlessly. More instructions on Zoom can be viewed here. If you plan to use a mobile device, you will need to download the free Zoom App from the app store prior to joining the meeting.


  • For the first time, voting will be conducted online through a secure voting portal which will require authentication and credentials. If you are a qualified voting delegate or alternate, you will receive additional instructions on how to vote via email.
  • Sample/test voting will open at 8 p.m. ET on January 19, 2021, directly after the Pre-Convention meeting. Our goal is to ensure that all eligible voters have an opportunity to click through the voting interface so that the voting during Convention will be familiar.
  • The actual voting will take place during Convention on January 30.
Thank you for all that you do for our Diocese and we look forward to seeing you at this year's Annual Convention in just a few short weeks.
