The Diocesan Council is comprised of a diverse group of people, both clergy and laity, from across the diocese who function as "the diocesan convention in recess" with the responsibility to oversee the implementation of the decisions made by the convention, work with staff and volunteers to monitor the ongoing life of the diocese, and to act on behalf of the convention in between meetings.

This page provides access to up-to-date information on the business of the Diocesan Council, a description of how it functions, and information about each Diocesan Council member. If you need further assistance, call The Episcopal Center at (269) 381-2710.
