This year the Anglican Convocation of the West will be holding its annual Clericus in conjunction with its Regional Synod in Mesilla, New Mexico, April 18, 19, 20 and 21.
Fr Michael Jarrett (https://thebordermission.org/
) will be leading the Clericus portion of our time.
Please remember that your two Representatives to the Regional Synod should be the same as for the General Synod.
The clergy will be renewing their ordination vows. After the Synod, our retreat will continue with our Clericus. All are invited to stay on for this part.
Finally, the business portion of the Synod will be a hybrid model. Those who cannot attend in person can do so via Zoom.
The Synod is for all clergy, plus two delegates from each church in the Convocation of the West.
The Clericus is for all the clergy and candidates of the Convocation of the West in particular; others, lay or clergy, are most welcome as well. Those coming for Synod are most welcome to stay and fellowship with us.
WHEN: April 18th-21st, 2023
