Archbishop Greg Kerr-Wilson along with the Diocesan Council announced that the 78th Convention of Synod was called for Saturday, October 24, 2020. Licensed Clergy and Elected Lay Delegates to Synod are to attend.

Preparation included the reading and being familiar with all materials sent out prior to Synod.  Elections will were held for the following positions:

-          Provincial Synod (required: 3 Clergy, 2 Lay, 1 Youth)

-          General Synod (required: 3 Clergy, 3 Lay, 1 Youth)

-          Diocesan Council (required: 1 Clergy and 1 Lay from each of the 5 Deaneries)

During a time of physical distancing, Synod was held via Zoom.  For the election process, we used paper ballots sent out to each delegate and returned to our office prior to the Synod meeting.

In an effort to make good use of limited time, only the essentials of Synod, in accordance with the Canons, were dealt with.
