ECMN X Bishop Electing Convention

God willing, the ECMN will be electing our next Bishop on Saturday, January 25, 2020 at St. Mark’s Cathedral. All clergy and lay delegates are invited to attend. Lunch will be served.


Registration is now open. All Certified Lay Delegates and Canonically Resident Clergy must register in order to vote at the electing convention. Unlike annual convention, each delegate must register themselves individually. Additionally, registration has been split in two: registration for clergy and registration for lay delegates.


Hotel accommodations are available at a reduced price for Friday evening, January 24 at the DoubleTree in downtown Minneapolis.
