6:15 pm -Reception
7:00 pm – Seated Dinner
9:15 pm – Compline in the Atrium
Begin the evening with a reception among the exhibitors in the corridors surrounding the Banquet area. There will be several cash bars (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) available, so bring those “greenbacks” as no credit cards accepted.
New this year, for a $200 donation to the Council Hurricane Relief effort your church can reserve a table for 10 at the banquet. Even better you can request a center-of-the-action table or edge-of-room table for a quick exit. And best of all, your group can arrive at a leisurely pace, knowing you have a seat for everyone. Don’t have 10 friends? That’s OK, find another church or invite a stranger! Click here to signup and pay.
At 7:00 pm our seated dinner is designed to serve as a time of family reunion. Find a chair (or your reserved table!) with friends and catch up on the latest happenings around the diocese. The meal begins with a salad of Texas field greens, red grapes, spiced pecans and goat cheese crumbles; followed by a Duo of herb seared filet of Salmon with poblano hollandaise sauce and Sirloin with shiitake burgundy reduction; and capping it all is chocolate caramelized pecan cake. For those who require a vegetarian entree, an alternative will be available. Note: During registration indicate any special food needs (Gluten free, vegetarian, etc.) You will receive a special card to display in front of your place setting at all Council meals.
It just wouldn’t be Council at the Embassy if we didn’t close our evening with a short Compline service in the Atrium about 8:45 pm.
The cost of the Banquet is included for Clergy, Delegates, Alternates and Clergy Spouses. Registered visitors to Council (at $35) and registered exhibitors (cost of booth) may purchase banquet tickets for $40 each.
