The Episcopal Church House of Bishops will meet at the Camp Allen Conference & Retreat Center in Navasota, TX (Diocese of Texas) March 21-25.

Meeting in retreat, the theme for the gathering will be “How Shall We Sing the Lord’s Song in a Strange Land.” The schedule calls for prayer-filled sessions, and bishops will participate in daily Bible study, reflection and worship. Presentations and discussion will focus on mission of the Church.

As in previous years, this spring meeting of the House of Bishop is a retreat and therefore not open to the media.  However:

- Daily Accounts along with other related information will be prepared by HOB members and released.

- Accommodations will be made for media to interview presenters and participants via phone.

- There will be an over-the-phone media conference at the conclusion of the House of Bishops meeting on Tuesday, March 25; Central time TBD. Pre-registration for participation is required; contact Neva Rae Fox, publicaffairs@episcopalchurch.org
