Convention 2021

Striving for Justice & Peace:

The 111th Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Olympia

Online | October 29-30

(Some workshops and other virtual events will be held throughout the week leading up to the Convention's main sessions.)

The Diocesan Convention is held annually for clergy and lay delegates to conduct diocesan business. This includes electing individuals to offices and deputations, admitting worshiping communities as missions or parishes, and voting on resolutions. The bishop also gives an annual address. This year's Convention will be held virtually.


The list of workshop offerings for the 2021 Diocesan Convention is now available! Join early and discover vital ministries across the diocese and gain tools you'll be able to use in your own congregations and ministries. Workshops are open to everyone, so come and join us for this time of learning and community. Links to join the workshops via zoom will be posted to the Convention website.

This document outlines the process, timeline, hearing schedule, and requirements for submission of proposed resolutions to the 2021 diocesan convention.

This year the Resolutions Committee, with the encouragement of Bishop Rickel, initiated a two-stage process for review of resolutions. In the first stage, submitters of resolutions were invited to an “early-bird” deadline, if they so chose, in order to engage with the Resolutions Committee in hearings designed to offer the opportunity to refine or perfect the resolutions ahead of the canonical deadline for submission, which was September 14 (45 days in advance of the Convention).
