The Constitution and Canons guide the governance of the diocese. A committee reviews the Constitution and Canons each year and considers whether to propose changes.

Proposed amendments may come from any member of the diocese, although the committee requests an opportunity to review the proposal to make sure it abides by wider-church rules. Proposed amendments should be submitted in writing by August 4 (90 days prior) to convention@diosohio.org.

The absolute deadline to submit a proposed change is September 4 (60 days prior). Contact diocesan chancellor Joseph J. Dehner at 513.651.6949 or jdehner@fbtlaw.com with any questions.
