Information on the 2018 Diocesan General Convention
General Convention is the largest governing body of The Episcopal Church, meeting every three years, made up of the Church’s bishops and elected lay and ordained deputies from each diocese. For an informative dive into the polity and legislative process of General Convention, take a look at this 20-page booklet illustrated by Carvel Glen, a member of St. Stephen’s, Houston. The 79th General Convention will meet at the Austin Convention Center in Downtown Austin, Texas, from July 3 to 13. Here are the calendars for General Convention and draft GC Schedule. During Convention, check the diocesan website for updates from our deputies and bishops. St. Paul’s has volunteers attending but you can also virtually attend by following along with the Virtual Binder. It will be updated in real time as resolutions move through legislative committees and the floors of the House of Deputies and the House of Bishops. Please keep all attendees in your prayers.
Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you.” Matthew 7:7
Contained in the many pages of this website is a snapshot into who we are as a parish. Our hope is that you will not only look through our website to learn more about us but also join us on a Sunday for worship. At St. Paul’s, we seek to live a life that embodies our mission: “Loving the Lord and our neighbors.”
