“According to the constitution, the Episcopal Church in Arkansas gathers once a year to govern the congregations that make up the Diocese of Arkansas. We worship, we celebrate, we listen, we speak, we debate, and we vote. It is a large event with a large amount of work needing to be done.
The first part of the convention is our gathering, which happens on Friday evening. We celebrate the sacraments in a festive Holy Eucharist. All of the clergy vest and process, the Bishop preaches and presides, and afterwards, we continue to enjoy being the church in community at a reception.
