151st Diocesan Convention of Long Island

Friday & Saturday, November 10th & 11th, 2017
Melville Marriott Long Island, Melville, NY

The annual diocesan convention is the ultimate organizational decision-making body comprised of clergy and lay members. Convention meets annually for two days in November. 

Each year, representatives from around our diocese gather to review and discuss issues, policies and structures. Convention delegates decide the diocesan budget (based on recommendations from Diocesan Council), elect members of the diocese’s various administrative, executive and judicial bodies and vote on any resolutions—including those that amend or add to the Constitution or Canons—that may be brought before it. When necessary, they elect the Bishop, Assisting Bishop or Coadjutor and Bishop(s) Suffragan.November 10 - 11, 2017
