The Standing Committee has set a November 20 deadline for receiving recommendations for who might serve on the Nomination Committee and Transition Committee responsible for the election of the next bishop. Anyone can make a recommendation. The Standing Committee is asking particularly groups, such as parish districts, rectors and vestries – those that know local congregations best – to suggest potential committee members.

Descriptions of these committees, the qualifications for membership, and recommendation forms are available on a new "Bishop Search" section of the diocesan website at

The site offers additional information and resources, such as prayers for individual and parish use during the search process.
