It was the first time the convention, held for Episcopalian Church leaders and their spouses, has been held in Utah. As part of the convention, attendees participated in an interfaith service project at Welfare Square with Latter-day Saints to package cheddar cheese, bag and slice bread, and bottle salsa on June 29.
