Cascadia District Colloquy


"Colloquy," from the Latin for "speak together," simply means "conversation" or "to confer together."

The clergy and other folks in ministerial leadership in the Cascadia District gather in geographically arranged sub-groups several times during the year to be in conversation together about ministry, administrative details, what's new and what never changes, and to be in supportive relationship with one another.

The Colloquy groupings in 2021-2022 may start out meeting by Zoom.  There are 5 groups.  More information will be coming out in August.
