244th Diocesan Convention Report
November 7, 2020
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 244th Convention of the diocese was conducted online via Zoom on Saturday November 7, 2020, with the exception that the bishops and other essential participants were at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, appropriately distanced from one another.
The formal Convention of November 7 was preceded by a series of online “roll out” meetings, which formed part of the official proceedings. At these roll out meetings, the key ministries of the diocese delivered presentations, the chair of the Budget Committee, the Rev. Matt Mead, presented the proposed 2021 Diocesan Budget, and the resolutions slated to come before the Convention were introduced. Recordings of these meetings are show below, along with a recording of the November 2 Convention Service, at which the Reverend Canon Kelly Brown Douglas, Dean of Episcopal Divinity School at Union Theological Seminary, was the preacher.
