For over a century, Convocation has been a gathering for faith leaders – clergy and laity – meant to educate, inspire and connect. 

This year’s Convocation will invite faith leaders and faith communities to be part of a transformative response to the current climate crisis. Presenters will confront the flawed values of Western culture that prioritize individualism, consumerism, and unrestrained growth, while calling us to just and sustainable practices that protect the common good and honor the sacredness of our planetary home. The gathering will incorporate worship, music, poetry, and contemplative practices, all designed to lead participants to a deeper, more spiritually grounded engagement with God’s Creation.

This event is offered in partnership with the Maine Council of Churches and Maine Conference United Church of Christ.

Registration will open in early March.  Please save the date, and complete the interest form to receive an email reminder as registration goes live.
