We have a fabulous opportunity to get involved with Episcopalians from all over the country when the Diocese of Texas hosts General Convention right here in Austin next summer. The General Convention of The Episcopal Church meets every three years to conduct the business of The Episcopal Church. In 2018, it will gather at the Austin Convention Center from Thursday, July 5, through Friday, July 13. Lots of volunteers are needed to support the work of the convention and provide some big Texas hospitality. It would be great to have St. George’s well represented in the volunteer cadre! To find out how you can help, plan to be at coffee hour after the 10:30 service on Sunday, December 10, for a special presentation. Local volunteer coordinators Halley Ortiz, Anthony Chapple, and Scott Madison will be with us to provide information and answer your questions.
For more information on the December 10 presentation or volunteering at General Convention, contact Frances Rickard or the church office.
