Dear People of Calvary,

The 78th meeting of the General Convention of the Episcopal Church recently concluded their time together in Salt Lake City, Utah on July 3rd. The General Convention is the highest authority or decision-making body in the Episcopal Church and meets every three years in a different host city. The Convention is nine days of meetings with prayer, worship, discussions, resolutions debated and voted upon, and a time to see old friends and make new ones.


News from General Convention

North Carolina Bishop Michael Curry was elected as the 27th Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church on Saturday, June 27, 2015. This history-making decision will bring the first person of color into church’s top leadership office.
