Yesterday was the Convention of Las Damas Episcopales de Diocese de Panamá, or the Episcopal Women of Diocese of Panamá. The convention began with a Eucharist at which Bishop Murray preached and presided. I didn't witness most of the meeting as I had to go over to San Pablo to get the lay of the land for Sunday's Convention Eucharist.
Today workshops were held but I was unable to attend as I presided at a huge funeral. Tomorrow is business day, and I'll be attending that, even though I can't vote as I am canonically resident in the Diocese of El Camino Real of TEC. But I'll get to take lots of photos.
Here are photos from the ECW Convention

This table has a Barbie in blue and white, UTO Barbie. But you'd never know it from my poor photography! Here's UTO Barbie's skirt
