Liturgical Swap Meet

Do you have gently used vestments and altar linens collecting dust in the closet? Do you need new purple altar linens and just don’t have money in the budget? Could your church use another chalice?

Good news – we will be hosting our first-ever “liturgical swap meet” at the 145th annual convention! Bring your surplus linens, robes, vestments and other small appointments to the designated area in Ballroom B, where they just may find a new home.

Here is just a sample of items that will be available.

To participate in the swap meet

  1. If you have items to donate, fill out the form below so that we can compile a list of available items. This will help with congregations looking for specific needs.
  2. Bring your items to the designated area in Ballroom B beginning at 9 a.m. on Friday, November 15
  3. Look for and claim any items your church needs! Everyone can shop, even if they didn’t donate any items. We will have several items available from closed congregations as well.
  4. Pick up your remaining items when the swap meet is over on Saturday, November 16.

It’s that easy! If you have any further questions, contact Julie Murray in the communications office at jmurray@diosohio.org.

Please note: No furniture or other large items will be accepted due to space limitations. Churches will be responsible for picking up any of their items not claimed.
