The Diocesan Convention is held annually for clergy and lay delegates to conduct diocesan business. This includes electing individuals to offices and deputations, admitting worshiping communities as missions or parishes, and voting on resolutions. The bishop also gives an annual address.

The 2021 Diocesan Convention will be held on October 29-30.


We are living through challenging times – caught in the intersection of twin pandemics. The continued spread of COVID-19 has laid bare many of the inequities within our society and prevents us from being able to gather face-to-face.

The 110th Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Olympia was held October 23-24, as we gathered virtually for workshops and worship, assembling remotely to do the work of the diocese. Peruse the links below to see how we came together and connected as the Body of Christ.
