143rd Annual Diocesan Convention Nov. 10-11, 2017 Cincinnati, Ohio at the Hyatt Regency This convention will be like no other! In addition to a greatly condensed business meeting, programming will include time for learning, time for talking, and fun opportunities for fellowship. To help frame our conversations, we will welcome the Rev. Paul Fromberg, rector of St. Gregory of Nyssa in San Francisco and author of The Art of Transformation: Three Things That Churches Do That Change Everything, as keynote speaker. Several workshops on making transformations that will help us connect with our neighborhoods will be offered. All are welcome – you do not need to be a delegate to attend! Making dining an opportunity for fellowship is another big change. Lunches on Friday and Saturday will be sit-down meals – no boxed lunch! And in place of a banquet Friday night, there will a fun opportunity to go into and learn about the neighborhoods of Cincinnati, all while enjoying great meals and meeting new friends. More information on this is coming soon. While the business meeting will be condensed, you can see that our days will be filled! In order to make time for all of these activities, convention will be called to order at 9 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 10. For those travelling into Cincinnati on Thursday evening, Christ Church Cathedral is offering a bicentennial walk-about reception celebration from 5 to 7 p.m. and early convention check-in will be open from 6 to 8 p.m. Stay tuned to e-Connections or check back here often for information as it becomes available. Early-bird registration is now open!
