To: All Members and Friends of
The Liberal Catholic Church
Province of the United States of America
Greetings! On behalf of myself as Presiding Archbishop, the Corporate Board of the American Province, the Provincial Episcopal Synod, the Clerical Synod and the Order of Our Lady, it is my great pleasure to announce the convening of the Triennial Assembly of the Liberal Catholic Church. According to the Constitution and By-laws of the Province we are required to meet in convention on a three year cycle to transact election of officers and publish reports by all parishes, and financial officers and various committees.
In addition to compliance with legal aspects, the Triennial Assembly has proven to be a wonderful opportunity to meet together in loving fellowship and experience a renewal of spiritual life and commitment. Our last Assembly was held here in Ojai in 2018 and due to the pandemic we were not able to gather since then. Therefore, it is of the greatest importance that we gather as a family now that travel and assembly affords us the opportunity.
The dates are November 2nd through November 5, 2023 at the Pro-Cathedral of Our Lady and All Angels Liberal Catholic Church, Ojai, California. Further information regarding a schedule of events will be forthcoming. There is no cost for registration two meals each day will be provided on Friday and Saturday and a catered luncheon on Sunday after the closing Eucharist. There will be services every day and scheduled speakers. All meetings will be open.
Please consult the Code of Canons and make sure a representative for each parish is elected from the membership and is the person authorized to vote in the Assembly. Representatives should be elected from the laity rather than clergy.
With every blessing I look forward to meeting with you in November.
