General Convention: Young Adult Festival and Volunteering

EDOT NEEDS VOLUNTEERS
The Diocese of Texas needs to fill 600 additional shifts at the Episcopal Church’s General Convention, July 5-13 in Austin. Please sign up directly at http://bit.ly/GenConReg2018 or find us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/general.convention.2018.volunteers. Come and help show the rest of the Church our Texas hospitality. You can sign up for one or more shifts – whatever most fits your schedule.  Funds have been set aside to facilitate participation from our Spanish-speaking congregations.  Contact The Rev. Eileen O’Brien for details, eobrien@houstoncanterbury.org.

DEADLINE FOR YOUNG ADULT FESTIVAL APPROACHES
The Young Adult Festival will be July 4-9 in Austin at General Convention.  Young Adult Festival is a great way to experience General Convention and to see the larger church at work.  Houston Canterbury is gathering young adults to go and fully participate in making young adult voices heard on issues that matter for the future of the Church.  Scholarship funds have been set aside to make your participation possible.  Get in touch with The Rev. Eileen O’Brien, eobrien@houstoncanterbury.org, for more information.
