The Episcopal Church of the Eastern Shore of Maryland gathers once a year to govern the parishes that make up the Diocese of Easton. We worship, we celebrate, we listen, we speak, we debate, and we vote. It is an important event with much work that needs to be done. It is also where the Bishop makes his annual address. Diocesan Convention is a balance between being the church and dreaming the church, and there is a time and place for both.
Each church in the Diocese selects delegates and alternates to represent them, along with clergy, on behalf of their parish. Delegates and canonically resident clergy are authorized to vote. All these individuals participate in the 2021 Convention via zoom meeting. Others are welcome to watch the livestream on the Episcopal Diocese of Easton Facebook page as non-voting guests.
ONLY INDIVIDUALS WITH VOICE AND/OR VOTE SHOULD COMPLETE THE REGISTRATION. This includes clergy, delegates, and alternates. We will be collecting important information through the registration process that will help us communicate with you and run a smooth virtual convention. Please send this link to those registering (www.dioceseofeaston.org/convention2021registration).
