ANCC parishes from across the nation gather every other year in convocation to renew our commitment to the Lord and one another. Given the state of the nation and the world, we especially wanted next year’s convocation to focus on issues of social, economic, environmental, and gender justice.
The 2018 national ANCC Convocation will be held August 16-18, 2018, at Maryland’s Claggett Center. The convocation theme is taken from Micah 6:8: “God has told you, O woman and man, what is good— and what does the Lord require of you, but to do justice and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
Convocation workshops will encourage attendees to reflect on concrete ways that their parishes can embody Micah’s vision.
The Convocation keynote speaker is Sister Kate Kuenstler, an independent canon lawyer and advocate for the laity.
