BISHOP SEARCH UPDATE: In recent weeks, the Nominating Committee and the Standing Committee have been prayerfully considering the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the Bishop Search process.
Given the extraordinary circumstances, the Standing Committee has made the decision, with the Nominating Committee’s recommendation, to shift the Bishop Search process by 60-90 days. The Nominating Committee will continue to do their work during this time, however, the Diocesan Profile, which was scheduled for release on July 1, 2020, is now scheduled to be released September 1, 2020 to October 1, 2020.
The Standing Committee is very grateful for the work and discernment of the Nominating Committee during this difficult time. We’ll keep you informed in the coming months as events unfold and the schedule of the search process becomes more clear.
