Clergy of the Diocese of Chicago are invited to spend time with the Most Rev. Dr. Katharine Jefferts Schori and with the Rev. Becca Stevens at this year's Clergy Conference.
The Presiding Bishop will join the conference as a guest while she visits family in the Chicago area. Becca, the lead speaker, is an Episcopal priest in Nashville who is the founder of Magdalene, a community of women who have survived prostitution, trafficking and addiction, and its social enterprise, Thistle Farms (see story below).
Join us! We begin October 5 at 5:30 pm with the annual Celebratory Eucharist followed by the Clergy Appreciation Dinner at St. James the Less, Northfield, and then move on to Techny Towers. The conference proper will begin by 9 am on Monday October 6 and finish after lunch on October 7.
