Registering for Diocesan Convention, Oct. 7-8

[From Archdeacon Stringfellow]

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

This note is written to give you a simple and overall picture of registering for the Diocesan Convention to be held October 7-8 at the Cathedral Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem.

Lay Delegates need to see that three steps are accomplished:

1.  Each Lay Delegate has to make sure that the parish you represent has filed a Certificate of Election with the Secretary of the Diocese.   This step is unnecessary for Lay Visitors to Convention who may simply register by accomplishing 2 and 3 below.

2.  Each Lay Delegate either individually or as part of your parish's delegation needs to Register for Convention.  This process now is exclusively accomplished online at the Diocesan website.  The website will be programmed to receive registrations beginning August 5.  The deadline to complete registrations is September 26.  (Late registrations incur a late registration fee.)  It is here that you specify your entrĂ©e for the banquet.

3.  Each Delegate either individually or as part of your parish's delegation needs to reserve a room at a hotel in Bethlehem if you need overnight accommodations.  Please find the attached names of the hotels, their locations, the rates they charge, and their telephone numbers.

The Clergy Delegates to Convention have to accomplish numbers 2 and 3 of these steps.  In virtue of being canonically resident or licensed to officiate clergy are expected to attend and to be part of Convention.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask them.

Best regards,

Howard Stringfellow
Archdeacon
