I will be a Deputy from the Diocese of Virginia at the upcoming General Convention of the Episcopal Church, July 5th – 13th , 2018 in Austin, Texas.
The Convention meets every three years, and is composed of a House of Bishops and a House of Deputies. The House of Deputies is composed of four lay and four clergy deputies, who are sent by each diocese to Convention. The Convention will work to determine the budget for the next three years for the national church; and oversee policies, resolutions and other matters relating to the governance of the church.
I will leave this Tuesday, and return on Saturday, July 14th . The next day I will lead a special Forum Hour, Sunday, July 15th, about General Convention at 9:15a.m. in the Zabriskie Parish Hall.
I ask you to pray for me, and for the work of the Convention. Thank you all,
The Rev. J. Randolph Alexander, Jr.
