Greetings NAGA members. The General Convention of the Episcopal Church and our NAGA Triennial Meeting are rapidly approaching. 

NAGA will meet as a body and stay at the Galt House Hotel, 140 N 4th Street, Louisville, Kentucky 40202, a lovely old but recently renovated hotel on the Ohio River. Additional information on the accommodations available at the Galt House Hotel can be found at the end of this article. 

Kentucky International Convention Center

Louisville is a vibrant, compact, and walkable city with lots of amenities. Our location is convenient to the Kentucky International Convention Center (KICC) at 221 South 4th Street, where the Episcopal General Convention will be held, and the Yum Center. The Galt House is also furnishing our meeting space. 

• The General Convention will have three Eucharists when we will be serving — Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday. 

• We will have a booth at the Convention Market; I believe this is a first for us. 

• The installation of our new board will be at Calvery Episcopal Church, 821 S 4th Street, a mile north of downtown. 

Abbey of Gethsemani

• Bishop Curry’s revival will be Saturday evening (June 22nd) at the Yum Center, 1 Arena Plaza, a 22,000-seat arena a few blocks from the Galt House. The forecast last summer was 15,000+ attendees. 

While our General Convention plans are not yet complete, our Triennial Meeting includes a number of workshops and excursions (see Agenda below) — a liturgical threads workshop, possibly a flower workshop, and a presentation/workshop from CM Almy. For our field trip we are planning on a tour of the Abbey of Gethsemani in Trappist, Kentucky, and a distillery tour. On Sunday evening (June 23rd) the Episcopal Church Women (ECW) are hosting their 50th anniversary party, and on Monday (June 24th) the Diocese of Kentucky is hosting an event. Adding to the suspense of this convention will be the election of our next presiding bishop; what an exciting time. See you in Louisville.
