Plan Now to Come to the River!

You’re Joyfully Welcome to the 180th Diocesan Convention (and Family Reunion!)

October 26-28, Jeffersonville and New Albany

There’s a can’t-miss event October 26-28 you’ll want to get on your schedule.  Come to the River!, the 180th Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis, promises to add fun, action, learning, and discussion opportunities to the annual business of convention.

Think dance party.  Or, how about going on a real-life pastoral visit in the middle of the Ohio River?  Discovering a gazillion ideas to rev up your ministry… high-energy visioning about the future… or making a real impact around issues of homelessness, the Hoosier opioid crisis, and with pets of low-income families.  Learning about Indiana river history and the horseback journeys of Bishop Jackson Kemper as he settled Episcopal churches right here in Indiana and throughout the Midwest.  Whether you’re a delegate, alternate, parishioner, or family member—trust us.  This will be worth a trip.

Watch this space and www.indydio.org for more details and event registration opportunities.  Register now to reserve your hotel accommodations (on the river, of course!).
