Bishop Discernment Gatherings

The five nominees for election as the next Bishop of Pennsylvania will be visiting the diocese this week to learn more about us.  Four open meetings are being held at which we can meet the nominees, hear something of their vision for the diocese, and ask them questions.

The Diocese suggests that all convention delegates and others interested in the bishop discernment process examine the Diocesan Profile, especially the section entitled “The Bishop We Seek,” prior to attending a meeting.  You can also read information about the candidates on the discernment website.  The discernment gatherings will take place outside Center City, so below you’ll find the location and time of each gathering, along with an embedded map you can use to obtain directions by automobile or public transit.
