Diocesan Synod Participation
The Diocese of Ottawa extends from Lancaster to Mattawa, north to Maniwaki on the Quebec side, and as far west as Iroquois, comprising almost 90 Parishes.
Diocesan Synod is a gathering of representatives from all parishes of the Diocese which meets annually to make decisions concerning the administration and management of the Diocese. It also meets on other occasions as necessary, for example to elect a Bishop.
Representation is according to the size of the parish; we are represented by two lay members and the Rector.
