What’s happening on the last day of General Convention?

On the last day of General Convention, deputies and bishops will have a 10:30 am legislative session and a shorter, final session from 2:30 – 5:30 pm.

The worship service will be a little earlier this morning, at 8:30 am in Salt Lake City, which is 9:30 am our time.

You can also watch legislative sessions in the House of Bishops or the House of Deputies live on the General Convention Media Hub. Here’s what they’ll be talking about:

House of Deputies – view the calendars.

House of Bishops – view the calendars.

A “priority calendar” will include topics where debate and discussion is anticipated, and each resolution will be voted on separately.

Items on a “consent calendar” are usually not expected to require discussion or debate, so they’re voted on together in one block.

In the evening, the Fort Worth deputation has the option to get together with other deputations in our Province,  Province VII.
