2017 Clergy Conference
October 02, 2017
The Episcopal Diocese of Chicago annual clergy conference is scheduled for October 15 - 17, 2017.
The theme for the retreat is "Encourage One Another," inspired by 1 Thessalonians, 5:11, and it will be a gathering for and by clergy, for the sake of shared ministry. Elizabeth Jameson (rector at St. Simon's, Arlington Heights), Garth Howe (newly ordained deacon serving at Grace, Chicago) and Luis Garcia (lay leader at Church of the Atonement, Chicago) and Bishop Lee will share personal stories of the joys and challenges of ministry, with the hope of inspiring others to share their stories.
The gathering will begin Sunday night at St. James the Less, Northfield with sung evening prayer and the annual clergy appreciation dinner. The conference continues Monday morning at Techny Towers and ends with lunch on Tuesday.
Registration is now closed. Please contact Louisa McKellaston with questions.
