Bishops of The Episcopal Church will gather for the House of Bishops spring retreat meeting March 13 – 17 at Kanuga Conference Center in Hendersonville, NC.

The theme of the gathering will be Fostering a culture of curiosity, compassion and courage in Christ. Meditations will be offered by various bishops on aspects of the theme. Daily there will be meditations, reflection, and worship. At the concluding Eucharist, the bishops will renew their vows.

As in previous years, the spring meeting of the House of Bishops is a retreat and therefore not open to the media. Daily Accounts will be issued. There will be an over-the-phone media conference at the conclusion of the meeting on Tuesday, March 17.  Pre-registration required; to register contact Neva Rae Fox,
