Synod 2015

Mark your calendars for April 17-18, 2015, a Friday/Saturday, meeting near Chicago's O'Hare Airport. Province V holds its Synods every three years, in the spring prior to the General Convention. This year the Synod will have important work to do including the election of new officers and a lay representative to the Executive Council.

Specifically, Synod will convene at 10am on Friday and run through 2pm on Saturday, meeting at the Chicago O'Hare Sheraton. Registration forms will be made available beginning February 16 on this website.

Orientation for General Convention

Saturday, May 30 has been approved for our General Convention Orientation workshop. The workshop will be a web broadcast to each diocese from a central location, allowing dioceses to have more of their deputies present. The three hour presentation will begin at 10:00am-1:00pm Eastern/ 9:00am-Noon Central time.  The presentations will be especially important for this convention as many procedural changes are being made – not the least of which is going completely paperless.

General Convention

Dates have been set for the 78th General Convention of The Episcopal Church, in 2015. It will be Thursday, June 25 to Friday, July 3 at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City in the Diocese of Utah.

Experience the Living Waters

Province V covers Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, eastern Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin: 14 dioceses, 844 congregations, 220,000 lay persons and clergy.

Each diocese is bordered by at least one body of living water; the great American rivers, the Great Lakes, and myriad smaller bodies. The image of Living Water, baptismal waters, continues to shape our relationships and ministry.
