We value this time together. All canonically resident clergy and clergy who are serving in parochial positions in the diocese are expected to attend, so we may deepen and enrich our relationships. For this same reason, non-canonically resident clergy who are non-parochial, retired or engaged in other ministries in this diocese are also invited.
If you are unable to attend, please email Bishop Beisner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
