ANNUAL DIOCESAN CONVENTION

November 4th and 5th, 2022

Called to be2 (1).png

EDSJ, our 63rd Annual Convention is drawing ever closer. Our theme is: Called to be... a community on the go.  Due to our continued COVID realities and warranted responses, this convention will be, like its two predecessors, an online convention. The dates for our 63rd Annual Convention will be Friday and Saturday, November 4th and 5th. By way of explanation, the decision to continue with a virtual roadmap for convention occurred before I departed on sabbatical. Given the continued unpredictability of the pandemic, I decided, in consultation with staff and our governing bodies, that our roadmap thus far should be employed for this convention. In other words, Sisters and Brothers of EDSJ, we remain caring, cautious, and conservative in order to keep everyone safe and healthy. As ecclesiastical authority, I have determined that there remains an emergency under the canon and invoke canon 6.04, allowing a virtual platform for this convention.
