St. Thomas' Own Youth to Council

Grace Mewborn - Region XI, Council Youth Alternate
Grace Mewborn, a member of St. Thomas' and our youth group, has been elected by Region XI as the Council Youth Alternate.  This means that Grace will learn about diocesan Council/Convention this January and serve next year as a voting member of that body. 

FYI: The Diocese has 15 regions, determined by geography. Each region has a Regional Council, composed of members elected by the churches in each region. (The same people who represent the parish at the Annual Diocesan Council/Convention.) Each region has an elected President, who is a lay person, and an appointed Dean, who is a clergy person. Each region also elects one youth delegate (with seat, voice, and vote) to Annual Council/Convention, and one youth alternate.
