The 2017 Clergy-Laity Assembly will be held May 3 - 7, 2017, at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel. St. Catherine Parish in Greenwood Village, Colorado, is hosting the event.
Finding Purpose in His Gifts
For the equipping of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.
Every two years, members of the parishes of the Metropolis of Denver gather for our Clergy-Laity Assembly, which provides us with the opportunity to come together in fellowship as members of the Church, to obtain useful tools for parishes, and to gain insight into the vision and direction of our Metropolis. This year's theme "Finding Purpose in His Gifts," will focus on using our God-given gifts collectively to the glory of God and for the benefit of His people. Metropolitan Isaiah's protocol announcing the Assembly may be viewed at Protocol 17-02.
