You're invited to the 229th Diocesan Convention of the Episcopal Church in SC, hosted by the West Charleston Deanery, on Nov. 15-16 at the North Charleston Marriott. Our theme will be “Ponder Anew.” St. Mark's non-clergy delegates are Jim Phelps, George Utter, Susan Grimes and Katey Seibels, but everyone is welcome to attend.
We are delighted to have the Right Reverend Todd Ousley with us for Convention this year. In his role as the Bishop for Pastoral Development, Bishop Ousley provides direct support to the Presiding Bishop and the House of Bishops in the areas of episcopal transitions, intake for disciplinary matters involving bishops, and pastoral care of bishops, their families and diocesan systems. He also provides resources for re-deployment of bishops and explorations of creative diocesan collaborations.
There will be time at Diocesan Convention to hear from Bishop Ousley and our Standing Committee about the coming transitions in episcopal leadership for our Diocese.
Diocesan Convention this year presents opportunities to accomplish two primary goals: to do the necessary work for our diocese at its annual convention and to participate in the annual reunion of the people of The Episcopal Church in South Carolina.
