R2019-05 150 150 Diocese of Southern Ohio Annual Convention

R2019-05: A Resolution to Amend R2017-05

Whereas, the Diocese of Southern Ohio now meets in a one-day convention every other year, and when, in the odd numbered years convention meets for two days, in no case shall it begin before 12 p.m. on the first day; and

Whereas Diocesan Convention encourages delegates to bring their own meals or arranges the venues where meals are readily available at a reasonable price; and

Whereas the specifications of Resolution 2017-05 impose restrictions requiring all diocesan conventions, whether one or two days in length, to be held in parish churches or other venues which do not require meal or rental fees; and

Whereas the size of most of our parish churches will not accommodate the total number of participants to diocesan convention; therefore, be it

Resolved, that Resolution 2017-05 be amended to allow for the best efforts to find a venue that does not require meal or rental fees and, if no such venue is available within the other parameters of diocesan canons pertaining to diocesan convention, a venue be chosen where meal or rental fees are minimized.
