It's our diocesan biennial family reunion!
It's our opportunity to reconnect with old friends and a time to make new ones.
Together we will learn about, pray about, and share, what God is up to in our lives.
Together, let us be strengthened, as the diocese of Islands and Inlets, for the journey to which God is calling us.
Our theme: “Here in This Place.”
