Bishops of The Episcopal Church will gather for the House of Bishops spring retreat meeting March 8 – 12 at Kanuga Conference Center in NC.

The theme of the gathering will be Godly Leadership in the Midst of Loss. Meditations will be offered by various bishops on different aspects of loss. There will be daily meditations, reflection, daily worship and, at the concluding Eucharist, the bishops will renew their vows.

The bishops will gather for discussion on topics such as gun violence, and a business meeting will be held on March 12.


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 Wednesday, March 12.  Pre-registration required; to register contact Neva Rae Fox,
