After consultation with the heads of ECMN's elected bodies, other bishops, and chancellors throughout the Episcopal Church, and in keeping with the current guidance of the CDC, ECMN has decided to move the 2020 Convention scheduled for September 25-26 online.
Friday, September 25 (evening)
The Business meeting is for voting delegates only. We'll be working hard to ensure that we can attend to the annual canonical requirements of passing a budget and electing people for the Standing Committee, Commission on Ministry and Trustees.
We will be scheduling a practice session for clergy and lay delegates to become familiar with the online platform and practice voting ahead of the actual convention. We'll be sharing more details as this date approaches.
Saturday, September 26 (morning)
This session will be for absolutely all to attend, and will center on formation, learning and workshops. We have much to learn together, and the Holy Spirit is inviting us to process so much in light of living in the midst of a global pandemic in a world marred by centuries of systemic racism and brutal injustice.
Sunday, September 27 (morning)
An ECMN-wide virtual worship will be held with Bishop Loya and others from ECMN live-streamed.
