We invite you to join us in the Jesus Movement by welcoming the gathering of the Episcopal Church to Louisville, Kentucky.

The meetings of The General Convention and The Episcopal Church Women needs the support and dedication of volunteers to operate efficiently. Opportunities to volunteer offer an understanding of the governance of The Episcopal Church and is a wonderful way to meet people from the Diocese of Kentucky and others from all over The Episcopal Church. You may volunteer for as little as a half a day or for multiple shifts over many days.

The Diocese of Kentucky is collecting names and contact information for anyone interested in volunteering at the 81st General Convention scheduled for June 22nd – 28th, 2024 at the Kentucky International Convention Center.

Many volunteer skills and talents are needed. Include your name on the growing list or open the QR code below:

We appreciate your interest in contributing your valuable time to support The General Convention and the Triennial Meeting of the Episcopal Church Women.
