August 10-13, 2021, we had our 75th ECD Convention where we met virtually. The virtual Convention was a success! ECD members voted on their new board members. Thank you to the previous officers and welcome to the new officers. 

We are a group of people – Deaf, hard-of-hearing, and hearing family and friends – who worship God together in the Episcopal tradition.
