 The six-day conference will explore the role of deans, the role of the church, and issues of concern in today’s world, the newspaper reports..
 John Roundhill, Dean of St Paul’s Anglican Cathedral in Bendigo, said he was “both excited and I’ll confess to being a bit anxious” about hosting the attendees. “It’s a big event for us to organise,” he said.
