Please note - Owing to continued COVID restrictions, and in consultation with Chancellor James Travers, Bishop Sandra has determined that there will be no regular gathering of Synod in May 2021, and has informed Diocesan Council.  Canonically we are required to hold Synod within two years of the last Synod.  Since we held an electoral Synod in the fall, no Synod is required until September 2022.  The main reason for the decision was the difficulty of holding a Synod with multiple items on the agenda when large in large in person gatherings may still not be possible.  There is no firm date set for the next gathering of Synod.  As we see how the pandemic unfolds, we will have a clearer picture of when we can gather as Synod.  It is suggested that parishes continue to elect Synod delegates, just as in normal years with no Synod.  If you have questions, please email to


The Rev. Will Ferrey,

Executive Secretary of Synod

Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island
