General Convention, July 5-12

The 77th Episcopal Church General Convention will be held July 5 through July 12 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The Episcopal Church’s General Convention is held every three years, and is the bicameral governing body of the Church. It is composed of the House of Bishops, with upwards of 200 active and retired bishops, and the House of Deputies, with clergy and lay representatives elected from the 110 dioceses of the Church, at more than 800 members.
The Very Rev. Dr. Jake Owensby
One important activity of this year's meeting of the House of Bishops at General Convention will be to vote consent to our selection of the Very Rev. Dr. Jake Owensby to be consecrated Fourth Bishop of Western Louisiana.

For complete and extensive information on the General Convention 2012, check the website:

Please pray for our Bishop, Bishop-elect and our deputies...
Almighty and everliving God, source of all wisdom and understanding, be present with those who take counsel at the 77th General Convention of the Episcopal Church, for the renewal and mission of your Church. Teach us in all things to seek first your honor and glory. Guide us to perceive what is right, and grant us both the courage to pursue it and the grace to accomplish it; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
