Parish Annual Meeting and Elections, 2021

with No Comments

Please note the changes made to this year’s Annual Parish Meeting which has been adapted given the cathedral’s closure and the need to conduct our business virtually. All sessions of the Annual Meeting will take place via Zoom.

The Link to cast your vote will be announced in the meeting during Session 2, January 31.


ABOUT VOTING

Parish Communicants in Good Standing are to vote using the electronic link that will be included in the Zoom chat during the reconvened Annual Meeting on Sunday January 31, 2021 at approximately 10:00 AM.
