About the VGEC Annual Conferences

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.
