Stay tuned for news of Diocesan Convention

Your intrepid 7WD news team will be on site tomorrow for the 218th Convention of the Diocese of Rhode Island. There are five resolutions, though none of them is likely to be newsworthy to the blogosphere. There are three resolutions on immigration issues, one on disaster preparedness, and a resolution concerning the disposition of the considerable benefits that the Episcopal Church in Rhode Island received from the slave trade in the 19th century (think “Traces of the Trade“). 7WD officially supports passage of all five resolutions. Barring any late resolutions submitted tomorrow, we won’t be arguing about the usual things, which is good in my book.

I may or may not blog during the day. Check in for a report later in the afternoon — or sooner, if something really interesting happens.

By the way, make sure you check out the newly redesigned diocesan website. Nice work, Jessica Gates and team!

    There’s an article in the ProJo about RI being a haven for modern day slavers connected with the sex trade. Maybe the Diocese could atone in part for our complicity with slavery in the past by working to end slavery in the present.
