Our prayers are surrounding and supporting the bishops, delegates, clergy, and guests attending the 199th Annual Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina. Convention meets Nov. 21-22, 2014. Very special guests this year will include the Rt. Revd. Metlhayotlhe Beleme, the fifth Bishop of Botswana, and his wife Mma. Bishop Thapelo Beleme. The Diocese of Botswana is one of two companion dioceses of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina. A warm welcome to our guests and may God bless the ministries of our peoples in the years to come.
