2017 Diocesan Assembly
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Christ is risen!

Now is the time to register for this summer's DOS Assembly to be held in Chattanooga, TN, July 25 - 28 (Please note that Deans, DOS Administration, and Diocesan Council should arrive on Monday, July 24, by noon).

All information, including schedule, registration, and youth program details, can be found on the assembly website:

A letter of welcome from Archimandrite Gerasim can be found here. Registration for the assembly can be accomplished here. Reserve your hotel rooms here.

We are continuing our efforts to make this yearly gathering not simply a "business meeting" (as important as that is), but a time where the faithful (adults and youth) of the Diocese of the South can come together for fellowship, continuing education, mutual encouragement in the faith, and participation in the greater work and mission of the diocese and the church.

Please take time to read the "bullet points" appended below the signature block which may help orient you and guide you through the registration process. Be sure to share this information with your parish, and especially with your delegate(s).

Please remember that registration fees are based on the Assembly funding resolution passed last year in Wilmington. All missions, parishes, and monasteries are expected participate in the annual assembly.

I look forward to seeing you all in Chattanooga.
In the risen Lord,

Fr. Marcus Burch
