The Search for a New Bishop

Some dates you should be aware of during this process:

– The Nominating Committee has been working for many months screening the candidates and should be announcing the “nominees” the week of May 3, 2021.

– Shortly after that, their profiles will be made available online.

– In early June you will be able to watch interviews of the nominees online.

The election of our next Bishop will take place as a virtual convention on Saturday June 26. (Those voting from St. Stephens will be Father Chuck, Don Block and Gerry Dalton.)

– During the week of June 14-June 19 there will be several “meet and greet” sessions where you can meet the nominees in person. (These will also be streamed live.)

Bishop McConnell will retire on September 11 and a farewell celebration will take place around this time, to which all will be invited.

The consecration of the new Bishop will take place at Calvary church on November 13. Our Presiding Bishop, The Rt. Rev Michael Curry will be the “officiate.”

More details will be provided as each event draws near. – Gerry Dalton
