Convention links and resources posted on diocesan website

In advance of next Saturday's 42nd Convention of El Camino Real, the diocesan website's Convention Resources page has been updated with a wealth of information. Digital Convention resources are available to view for delegates, alternates, clergy, and guests -- click here.

Included are the following:

Draft Order of Business - English and Español
Nominee biographies
2022 Reports - English and Español
Draft budget, resolution information, - English and Español
and more.

On the day of Convention there will be Tech Chaplains available by email or phone to help with any issues you have logging on or working with Zoom or VPOLL. They can be reached at or 831-296-2279 (call or text).


  • Following the Constitutions and Canons Hearing there was an revision to the Constitutions and Canons Report. The revised document has been posted on the convention page  in English and Español, or you can view it by clicking here.
  • After the Resolutions Hearing there was a significant change in Resolution D - Minimum Clergy Compensation due to a math error. The revised Resolution has been posted on the convention page in English and Español, or you can view it by clicking here.
  • The Canons of The Episcopal Church require the diocesan secretaries “to make known” to their diocesan conventions any proposed alteration of the Book of Common Prayer or Constitution. That report has been posted on the convention page in English and Español, or you can view it by clicking here.
Habrá interpretación en español disponible los viernes y sábados.
