Pre-Council Convocational Meetings

Seven mandatory convocational meetings are held prior to each Diocesan Council to prepare delegates and clergy, whether it is their first or fifteenth time to serve our Church in this way. The Rt. Rev. David Reed, diocesan staff and officers, and committee chairs will review details of the diocesan budget, to be approved at Council, present the Nominations Booklet for review before voting at Council, and begin conversations vital to the shared ministry of our diocese.

Addressing important topics that may come to a vote before Council convenes will allow delegates and clergy to begin deliberations and discussions and can reduce the necessary time spent on business during Council.

All churches will receive enough printed Council 2020 Booklets for delegates and clergy at their Convocational Pre-Council Meeting. The information and materials within the booklet will help individuals before and during Council; every Council attendee should plan to bring their Council 2020 Booklet with them to Corpus Christi or utilize the digital version on the Documents page.
