The Diocesan Convention


Bishop Dietsche addresses the 2012 Convention

The Bishop presides over the Diocesan Convention, the ultimate organizational decision-making body comprised of clergy and lay members. Convention meets annually for one or two days in November.


The Convention decides the Diocesan budget (based on recommendations from the Budget and Finance Committee of the Diocesan Council), elects members of the diocese’s various administrative, executive and judicial bodies and votes on any resolutions—including those that amend or add to the Constitution or Canons—that may be brought before it. When necessary, it elects the Bishop, the Bishop Coadjutor and the Bishop(s) Suffragan.
