Diocesan Convention


Recap of the 2019 Diocesan Convention

The Annual Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Vermont took place on October 26 at the Hilton Burlington Lake Champlain. It was the first convention led by the new bishop, Rt. Rev. Shannon MacVean-Brown. Consistent with the event theme, Forward, Bishop Shannon offered a preview of what’s ahead for Vermont’s 45 Episcopal congregations. This year’s Convention offering, which totaled just over $5,600, was earmarked for recovery efforts in the Bahamas—an initiative that began when Hurricane Dorian wiped out much of Grand Bahama and Abaco islands in late August and early September.
