  • Nominee bios for diocesan office; General Convention deputies

  • Nominees for diocesan office, General Convention deputies, announced

    From John Miller, Chair of the Nominations Committee It is my great honor to announce to you that the diocese has received 31 nominations for our Nov. 7-9 Diocesan Convention, and that all five elections scheduled have enough candidates to be contested. Because of this, we will not need a second period of reopened nominations this year.

  • Diocesan Convention theme announced; registration now open

    Dear Friends in Christ, I would like to invite you attend our Annual Diocesan Convention with me this November. This year, there will be an intentional theme to our gathering, a theme that echoes where we are in the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California. I’ve chosen the theme because we have a unique opportunity, at the beginning of this episcopate, to look at where we are and where we’d like to go and chart a course toward that goal.

  • Prayers & Relief for Syrian Conflict

    by The Episcopal Diocese of Northern California We pray for those damaged by the fighting in Syria. To the wounded and injured: Come Lord Jesus. To the terrified who are living in shock: Come Lord Jesus.
