Diocesan Convention 2020 Default Image
The 149th┬áDiocesan Convention, which was held October 3, was a groundbreaking meeting for the Diocese of Bethlehem. Due to limitations brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s gathering was the first convention of the Diocese of Bethlehem which was held virtually rather than in person.
Bishop Kevin presents five emerging priorities for the diocese in his Convention address:
1) Vibrant and stable congregations
2) Racial justice and advocacy for the most vulnerable
3) Lay and clergy formation
4) Creating new faith communities
5) Diocesan partnerships
