Constitution and Canons Update

Since the 2017 annual Convention of the Diocese, the Committee on Constitution and Canons has been working on restatements of our Constitution and Canons. A proposed restated version was rejected by the 2021 Convention, and the 2022 Convention tasked the Committee with making further revisions. It is anticipated that the Committee’s recommendations will be presented to the 2023 Convention for a decision. Please review the documents and consider joining one of the feedback sessions, either in-person or on Zoom.
