Who is to attend: Representation is to include all clergy canonically resident or serving parishes in the convocation and three lay delegates from each parish, with at least one lay delegate from each parish who has served as a delegate at the last diocesan convention. The nature of parish representation in the canons points out an expectation that delegates to diocesan convention are chosen not only to represent the parish at the time of convention itself, but that delegates also have a responsibility for helping to carry out decisions made by convention. The thought is that as "partners in Christ" we need to have individuals who both formulate decisions (from convention) as well as help implement them in local regions.
