On the Road to General Convention

On the Road to General Convention

by The Episcopal Diocese of Northern California

On June 22nd, members of The Episcopal Church from across the nation and the world will begin their descent on Salt Lake City, Utah for the 78th Annual General Convention. Among them will be members of the NorCal Deputation, representing The Episcopal Diocese of Northern California.

Pictured here, from left to right, are members of the NorCal Deputation, starting with the back row: Jim Jordan, the Very Rev. Dr. Brian Baker, Canon Charles Mack, the Very Rev. Cliff Haggenjos and the Rev. Canon Stephen Carpenter. From left to right in the front row are: Anne Clarke, Joyce Patterson, the Rev. Cindy Long and Bishop Barry Beisner. Not pictured are: Lisa Sargent, the Rev. Dr. Sean Cox and the Rev. Megan Anderson.

The NorCal Deputation is made up of veterans and first-timers who will be attending the convention and representing our diocese. "I’m grateful to have the opportunity to see the work of the Church in this important moment in our life together," says Lay Deputy Alternate Anne Clarke, "and to experience the unique, participative process by which we make a lot of our decisions. I expect that the experience will be messy, complicated, interesting, beautiful… just like the Church!" Anne also joined the Office of the Bishop staff as the new Lifelong Christian Faith Formation Coordinator in May 2015. "I am particularly looking forward to connecting with other faith formation leaders and resources," Anne says, "as I begin that work here in this diocese."

The NorCal Deputation will be sharing the most up to date news and daily happenings from the convention.
