On January 26 the Bishop Search Committee will present its slate of nominees to the Standing Committee of the diocese for confirmation. This action concludes a year of hard work by the Bishop Search Committee, which was co-chaired by our rector, the Rev. Rodger C. Broadley. A second committee will then coordinate the election, consecration and transition for the new Bishop of Pennsylvania.
The candidates will be announced publicly on January 28, and their names will be posted on the diocesan website at noon on that day.
All Center City parishioners are welcome to attend a conversation about the nominees to be held on February 3 at Saint Clement’s Church, at 20th and Cherry streets. The meeting starts with dinner at 6 p.m. followed by the program at 6:30 p.m.; there is no charge and no RSVP is required.
There will be opportunities to meet with the nominees themselves during the week of February 14, and the election will be held at a special convention on March 12. For more details, see the diocesan website.
