140th Annual Diocesan Convention
October 24th-25th, 2014 | Fond du Lac

Watch Bishop Gunter's Pastoral Address.

Diocesan Convention - a time to gather for worship, enjoy fellowship and meet for diocesan business. Held in Fond du Lac at St. Paul's Cathedral and the historic Retlaw Plaza Hotel (two blocks east of the Cathedral), Friday includes Evensong (with volunteer choir) and a Banquet with Saturday having the Convention Eucharist and business sessions. Both days include exhibits. The role of the Convention is to elect members of bodies that oversee the functioning of the diocese as well as to provide direction for those bodies.

The Convention is an assembly of delegates of two types:

1) Lay delegates elected by their congregation with the number determined by average Sunday attendance;
2) Clergy delegates being 'canonically resident' (under authority of the bishop, may include those who live outside the diocese).

Congregations and Delegates
Delegates are the link between a congregation and the diocese, a responsibility that entails more than attending convention. Delegates take initiative and discuss convention business with church members prior to attending convention. Every congregation is asked to pray for their delegates and the convention during Sunday services.

Register
Anyone who will attend Convention (delegates, visitors, exhibitors and guests) must register. Late registration requires calling Vicky at the Diocesan Office at (920) 830-8866.

Lodging
Those staying overnight must make their own lodging arrangements. The Retlaw Plaza Hotel (the Convention Hotel) may have rooms available. Call (920) 923-3000 and reference group Diocese of Fond du Lac. For tax exemption you need to provide a copy of your congregation's Wisconsin Tax Exemption Certificate. Check-in is 3:00pm Friday. Check-out is 11:00am Saturday. Participants are encouraged to check-out just before or after the Convention Eucharist on Saturday.

Fees
Fees cover the cost of meals, gratuity, hospitality (special guests, tellers, and seminarians), facilities, supplies and postage. Fees increased after the September 30th deadline.
