The Rev. Charlie de Kay

Three parishioners (and 2 alternates) from St. Matthew’s are elected each year to attend the Diocesan Convention in the fall. During convention they consider church legislation, hear reports from agencies and organizations, participate in learning opportunities, are given a vote when electing officers of the diocese, enjoy fellowship, and gather for common worship in daily prayer and the Convention Eucharist. These parishioners are elected during the annual meeting in January of each year. This service is geared toward adults who want to know more about the Episcopal church in the Chicago area, are interested in Church governance and legislation and want to contribute time to the larger Episcopal church. The time commitment is a long weekend convention in November and possibly presenting a summary of the event to the larger congregation afterward. (Alternates only attend if a primary delegate cannot.) Children Teens Adults Any Age
