Church of the Holy Communion Pro-Cathedral is honored to be the host parish for the 55th General Council of the Reformed Episcopal Church. They look forward to welcoming everyone to the Dallas area and making your visit a  wonderful one. 

General Council will begin with Lunch followed by a worship service and business on Wednesday afternoon, June 14th. Council will conclude when business is finished on Friday, June 16th. (Note: The Diocese of Mid-America will host it's annual Synod business on Wednesday morning prior to Lunch). A full schedule will be posted on the REC website (rechurch.org) shortly.

 All meals and activities for the Synod of the Diocese of Mid-America and for General Council will take place at the Embassy Suites DFW North with the exception of the Thursday morning Communion service.  This primary worship service will be held at Church of the Holy Communion on Thursday morning with the Archbishop of the Anglican Church in North America preaching. Chartered bus transportation will be provided to/from the hotel to Church of the Holy Communion for the Thursday worship service.

Every room at the Embassy Suites is a two-room suite including an extra sofa-bed. A full breakfast buffet and a managers happy hour is included with your group room rate of $159/nt. You are responsible for booking your own your hotel reservation using the Group Code for our event. You may call the hotel directly at 972-724-2600, ask for in-house reservations, and book under Group Code RGR. You can also visit www.embassysuitesdfwnorth.com and enter the group code RGR. This Group Code is available for Tuesday June 13th through and including Friday night June 16th.  All rooms must be booked by Tuesday, May 23, 2017.

Additionally, the Embassy Suites will provide a free shuttle to/from DFW airport if you call and arrange. This will save you the cost of a car rental if you fly to DFW (not Love Field).

Registration for General Council will cost $325. This registration cost will include a full lunch buffet with hot carving stations on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday;  a dinner buffet on Wednesday and Thursday evenings; chartered bus transportation to/from the Church for the Thursday morning worship service; and will help cover all the other expenses associated with the council and worship services. Parents can purchase and pay a discounted rate for children's meals when completing their own reservations.

Finally - all pastors or persons in charge of a parish MUST complete a parish certification form. This will include providing basic statistical information for the years 2014, 2015, 2016 and a certification of duly elected representatives for General Council. This form can be found on the REC General Council Page (rechurch.org)
