28-30 June 2014 will mark our next Anglican Chaplains Training Symposium and Convocation, to be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Following immediately after the 2014 ACNA Provincial Assembly in Pittsburgh, this Convocation promises to be our most exciting and enriching ever! Remember, this annual gathering of Anglican Chaplains is not only a terrific opportunity to interact with your Bishop and spend three days with your colleagues, but it’s also one of the three requirements for maintaining Good Standing with your Bishop! So please mark your calendars NOW and plan to attend.
