Spring Renewal, 2023, is a wonderful gathering for everyone in our diocese. This year, at our in-person gathering we welcome the Rt. Rev. Diana Akiyama, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon, as our Keynote Speaker. She will engage us more deeply with our theme for 2023, “Courage in the Wilderness.” Spring Renewal will have all the elements you miss from convention, without the business! We will worship, share a banquet to honor our ministries, enjoy presentations and conversation, and most of all, simply be together as a diocese. Bishop Lucinda hopes that you plan to attend and greet Bishop Diana. Bishop Lucinda and Bishop Diana are excited to discuss our theme and expand our faithful journey in the wilderness.
Spring Renewal is an in-person only event and there will not be an online option available. Your registration fee of $125 covers the banquet dinner on Friday, lunch on Saturday, program and materials.
