The Diocese of Los Angeles’ first-ever virtual convention was held on Nov. 14 and 15, 2020. It was centered at St. Paul’s Commons, where Bishop John Harvey Taylor, Canon to the Ordinary Melissa McCarthy and a small crew of diocesan staff and officers — socially distanced and masked when in proximity — led the meeting and dealt with technical matters.
