General Convention 2018

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.

Volunteer shifts are available from Friday, June 29, through Friday, July 13. You can register for specific tasks and shifts online at No matter your talents or abilities, there is a way for you to share your gifts with General Convention and The Episcopal Church!

Don’t miss out on a great chance to show some Texas hospitality to Episcopalians from all over the country! We would love for St. George’s to be well represented in the volunteer cadre.
