The Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut

Annual Spring Training & Gathering

EVENT CANCELLED: In light of the COVID-19 outbreak and out of an abundance of caution, this event, which was to be held on Saturday, April 18, 2020, has been cancelled.

Join Episcopalians from across the Episcopal Church in Connecticut for a day of fellowship, learning, prayer and fun. All are welcome - people in the pews to vestry members to parish leaders and staff.

Workshop Categories: Christian Formation; Communication; Connecting & Collaborating; Essential Parish Operations; Leadership; Passion & Call; Pastoral Care; Season of Racial Healing, Justice & Reconciliation (new in 2019); Social Justice & Advocacy; Spiritual Practices; Stewardship; Worship

There are 37 different workshops that make up these categories and two of the workshops will be offered with simultaneous Spanish translation. They are Discernment & Formation: It's Not Just for the Clergy / Discernimiento y formacion: no es solo para el clero and Liturgical Experiments in the 21st Century / Experimentos liturgicos en el siglo XXI.

Registration is open!  You will be asked to note three workshop interests when registering. The workshop schedule will be determined after registration closes and will be based on facilitator availability and interest as reflected in the workshops noted in registration. You will not be specifically assigned to workshops, allowing for some flexibility the day of the event. The final schedule and other helpful information will be posted on this page the week of April 13, just prior to the event.

There is a minimal cost for this event which helps to cover hospitality and is non-refundable.  

  • Early Bird $15.00 (through March 21)
  • Regular $25.00 (March 22 through April 5)
  • At the Door $35.
