As we look ahead to the 80th General Convention of The Episcopal Church in July of 2022 in Baltimore, our deputation is already at work, preparing and learning about upcoming legislation. In addition to their duties as deputies, they have been assigned to legislative committees to help the work of General Convention move forward smoothly. We’re grateful to our deputation for their service, dedication and hard work and we look forward to welcoming the rest of the Church to Baltimore.
