I just recieved this email from the head of my deputation. I am Lay Alternate 2
I have just been informed that the Diocese will only be able to assume the costs for General Convention for the 4 Deputies of each order, and for the First Alternate of each order (not for the 2nd Alternate). I am assuming this is a cost effective measure taken to counter less income being received by the Diocese. We will talk about this at our meeting on Wednesday (Feb 4th at 6pm).
I, of course, will not be at this meeting because I have to work that night
