Church of the Holy Communion Pro-Cathedral - Dallas, TX

The 55th General Council of the Reformed Episcopal Church is quickly approaching. This year we are delighted to return to Dallas, TX. Church of the Holy Communion Pro-Cathedral is honored to be the host parish for this wonderful occasion and they are looking forward to welcoming everyone to the Dallas area and making your visit a wonderful one.

Lunch will be available for all attendees on Wednesday June 14th at Noon. General Council will officially begin at 2pm with a worship service at the hotel. The Council will conclude when business is finished on Friday, June 16th. We have chosen to start with lunch and a 2:00pm opening worship service to allow Council attendees to travel on Wednesday morning, if desired. This might be a possible savings of one night of hotel for some. If you desire to arrive on Tuesday, hotel rooms will still be available for the discounted rate. A full schedule and agenda will be posted shortly on this page.

IMPORTANT: All Diocese of Mid-America clergy & representatives should plan to arrive on Tuesday as we will conduct our Synod Business on Wednesday morning prior to lunch. A synod schedule and announcement will be distributed shortly.

All meals and activities for the Synod of the Diocese of Mid-America and for the Reformed Episcopal General Council will take place at the Embassy Suites DFW North hotel with the exception of the Thursday morning Communion service. This primary worship service will be held at Church of the Holy Communion on Thursday morning with the Archbishop of the Anglican Church in North America preaching. Chartered bus transportation will be provided to/from the hotel to Church of the Holy Communion for the Thursday worship service.
