This is a reminder that there's still time to sign up your vestries for the 2020 Diocesan Vestry Retreat.

It begins with dinner at 6pm on Friday March 20 and ends with lunch at noon on Sunday March 22. Please be sure you and/or your participating Vestry members register by 5pm on Friday, March 6, 2020.
