The next Synod of the Diocese of Ontario is planned for October 2021.
With the ongoing pandemic effecting in-person gathering limits across our diocese, The 2021 Synod Planning Committee is planning for a hybrid method of gathering for our 2021 Synod. The hybrid will involve a combination of online meeting and in-person small groups, or hubs, to be held at various locations across our diocese.
St. Mark’s has been chosen as one of the hubs (there will be 8 throughout the diocese); ours will include delegates from our own parish, St. Thomas’, Kingston, St. Luke’s, Kingston, St. John’s, Sunbury, St. Paul’s, Kingston and St. James, Kingston – a total of 21 participants.
As a backup plan, should the pandemic worsen in the health regions across our diocese in the latter part of the year, the 2021 Synod would be held as an online Synod only.
