Holy Comforter is entitled to have two lay delegates and one alternate to represent us at the annual diocesan convention, along with the rector. This will be an especially important meeting, as we will be voting on the election for the 11th Bishop of Georgia. Deputies for the 2012 General Convention will also be elected at this convention.
Diocesan Convention will be November 14-16 in Statesboro, Georgia. Convention starts on Thursday evening and ends at lunchtime on Saturday.
Requirements: Nominees must be confirmed members of the Episcopal Church and active in the life of Holy Comforter.
Before making your nomination, contact your nominee and ascertain that he or she meets these qualifications and is willing to serve. Submit a brief statement and photograph for publication describing the nominee and his/her involvement in the church and community.
