About the VGEC Annual Conference

One of the most anticipated and popular activities of the Vergers' Guild of the Episcopal Church is our annual conference which takes place at a member parish each year.

These exciting events are normally held Thursday through Sunday in late September to mid-October. Each conference has a series of sessions that cover several topics of interest to the verger and several events that foster fellowship, learning, and worship during the weekend.

Each conference culminates with a festival Holy Eucharist with a procession of all vergers in attendance. Each conference has an official conference photo to commemorate the weekend. Photos for all past conferences are located HERE.

Complete coverage of the VGEC Annual Conference is available at vergersvoice.org - the official news blog of the VGEC.
