Bishop Mark and the Standing Committee have rescheduled Synod 2021 from Saturday, June 5th to November 5th and 6th at Heartland Parish in Fort Wayne, IN. We have a high degree of confidence that the current trajectory we are on will allow us to go from a limited ZOOM format to an in-person gathering once again.
This will also put us on a new schedule with annual synod being held in the fall. For many years, we have had to deal with numerous scheduling challenges related to a spring synod (dates of Easter, Holy Week, Spring Breaks, various holidays, and graduations). A fall synod will allow us to schedule synod on a more consistent weekend every year for greater consistency in planning.
If you have any questions regarding this change, please feel free to contact the diocesan office.
