Winter Convocation

2017 Winter Convocation

February 10 and 11, 2017


Early registrations are helpful. Register by January 10 to save $15 per person on registration and $25 per night at the Comfort Inn.

Click this link to get to the registration and program website.

If we bring a team of six or more Adults from St. Matthew's, we receive a 50% refund on all of our congregation's Adult Registrations.

(Each person should register independently and pay the full or early bird price. Like last year, the week after Convocation the Diocese will send a 50% reimbursement check to all parishes with sufficient registrants.)

Please note that the ticket price does not include hotel registration or Friday dinner (though the Convocation has a really extensive menu at the 8:30 reception). Breakfast isn't included either, but the Comfort Inn has a complimentary breakfast for guests.
