This year’s 79th meeting of General Convention — the highest governing body of The Episcopal Church, meeting every three years and made up of the Church’s bishops and elected lay and ordained deputies from each diocese — is July 3 to 13 at the Austin Convention Center in downtown Austin, Texas. Our deputation, comprised of 8 deputies (4 clergy/4 lay) and 3 alternates (1 clergy/2 lay), are with Bishop Mary in Austin as voting members.
