As Christian people we are accountable for the right use of the gifts and skills with which our Father has blessed us. We are called to elect leaders who will help the bishops in guiding the diocesan body, to budget wisely and well the resource we have been given, and to report back to the people whom we serve.
Our Annual Diocesan Council is the vehicle through which we conduct the business of the diocese under its canons and constitution. At the 109th Council we will elect diocesan leadership to the Executive Board, the Standing Committee, The Episcopal Church Corporation, the trustees of TMI-the Episcopal School of Texas, and trustees of the University of the South. Council will receive and adopt diocesan budgets for 2013 and 2014 and will hear reports from several of our ministries as well as receive the written reports of all diocesan committees, commissions, and departments.
