Big fun was had at Diocesan Council this past weekend. Houston Canterbury was ably represented by Michelle Umana (delegate), Maria Gutierrez (alternate), and The Rev. Eileen O’Brien. Kimberly Bueno represented San Pablo/St. Paul’s. This year, members of Canterbury stepped into elected leadership positions in the diocese. Marcia Quintanilla was elected to the Standing Committee. Luz Montes was elected as a Lay Deputy for General Convention and Provincial Synod. Michelle Umana and The Rev. Eileen O’Brien will serve as 1st alternate for General Convention and Provincial Synod in the lay and clergy order, respectively. Next year’s Diocesan Council will be in Waco, TX. Get ready!
