Most years, the bishop of El Salvador or his representative attends our convention and most years a representative of our bishop attends the Salvadoran convention which is always the two days before Trinity Sunday. This year Deacon Chuck Stewart, chair of the Companion Diocese Committee, was the representative and attended the Convention Eucharist and Convention. He also participated in the Patronal Day Eucharist at Santisima Trinidad (Holy Trinity) in San Martin. Santisima Trinidad has been a sister parish to St. James’, Skaneateles, for almost twenty years.
