Statement on the 80th General Convention from the Diocese of Maryland

While we are disappointed at the thought of not being able to welcome as many Episcopalians to Baltimore for as long as originally planned, we are grateful that the 80th General Convention will still be held in Baltimore this summer. We invite all Episcopalians to visit Baltimore and our diocese virtually through our host website, gceighty.org.

Upcoming General Convention legislative committee hearings

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, legislative committee hearings for General Convention were held only on site, at Convention, never before Convention and never on a conferencing platform. This year’s Convention allows communicants of the broader Church more opportunity to attend open hearings. Take a look. You are welcome to register and attend these upcoming hearings.

In church circles, polity refers to the way a church is organized and governed.
