Advancing to General Convention

The General Convention is the governing body of The Episcopal Church that gathers every three years. Southern Virginia will be sending a deputation of four clergy and four lay people, along with Bishop Hollerith, to this year's gathering - the 79th General Convention in Austin, Texas, July 5-13, 2018.

We'll be using this blog to post news about General Convention before, during and after our time in Austin. In the weeks leading up to General Convention, we'll be posting information that will help you understand how General Convention works and its importance in the life of the Episcopal Church. While we're at General Convention, we'll use this site to post daily updates and photos. You'll also be able to find lots of photos on our Facebook page.

We hope you'll be following along as we advance toward the 79th General Convention!
