Bishop Susan Brown Snook is excited to invite you to this year’s Diocesan Convention: Casting Our Nets on Nov. 6-7. As we move into the Year of Evangelism in the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego, we are especially focusing on sharing the joy of Christ in our lives with the world. Today, the world needs the hope and joy of Jesus Christ more than ever.
At this year’s convention, you can look forward to presentations on the strategic plan, a keynote from the Rev. Canon Stephanie Spellers, workshops, and more.
For the first time in the history of the EDSD, Diocesan Convention will be held completely online. To help prepare for this year’s convention, the Diocesan Staff has prepared a new convention website to help explain and provide resources for our first virtual convention. Through this site, you can register as a delegate, a visitor, or an exhibitor, read through the current resolutions presented to Diocesan Convention, and make suggestions for nominations that are still open for elected office. Please explore the new website and contact us with questions or suggestions.
But how are we going to meet virtually?
Utilizing a new event management platform, Whova, delegates and visitors can look forward to a clear agenda, ways of connecting, exhibitor space, workshops, and more. Due to the technological hurdles of a virtual convention, we are asking that ALL delegates attend one of three online training sessions to prepare for Diocesan Convention. Each session will have an overview of the Whova platform, voting, and more. Please register for 1 of the 3 training sessions through the convention website. Visit the new website at www.ConventionEDSD.org.

The call came on a Saturday morning in mid-December. Something was horribly wrong at the migrant shelter in Mexicali, just across the Mexican border from Calexico, a border town very familiar to some of our Episcopal congregations. There was talk of an “orphan tragedy.” To many of those from the congregations of St. Margaret’s Episcopal […]
