Everyone, whether clergy, laity, or unaffiliated friend is invited to our church’s yearly Conclave. Due to continued travel restrictions, our Conclave will once again be held online, starting June 24th and running through June 26th. The lectures will be available on zoom and those that register will receive links to watch them later at leisure. Please consider participating as many speakers allow for questions and those tend to create a whole new lively debate even after the official lecture has ended.

This month’s Gnostic Mass is cancelled due to this year’s Conclave, which is at the end of the month, from the 24th through the 26th. After Conclave we will resume our monthly Mass as usual.

We are happy to announce the AJC Conclave for 2022! It will be held from June 24th to June 26th. In the interest of keeping the safety and health of our members paramount, this conclave will be held entirely online.
Conclave is an amazing opportunity for us to gather together and learn, socialize, and deepen our understanding, as both a community and individuals. Conclave offers workshops and panel discussions centered around Gnosticism as a whole, as well as the our particular brand of Gnosticism and related practices found within the Apostolic Johannite Church. Conclave is open to both the ordained and the lay community.
This year’s theme will be Gnosis Beyond Gnosticism, and we are happy to announce our keynote speaker, Dr. James McGrath. Dr. McGrath will be speaking on St. John the Baptist and the Mandaeans.
For more information regarding Dr. McGrath, and for a look at our programs and workshops for this year, please visit: https://www.johannite.org/conclave-2022/

As always, I encourage everyone to attend, especially clergy and seminarians, as this is a wonderful learning experience, a great opportunity to meet clergy from far flung areas, and a chance to enjoy the sacraments and rituals of the church for those of us who live far away from a parish.
