The Standing Committee of the Diocese of Southern Virginia is pleased to announce the following slate of candidates for the election of the 11th Bishop of our diocese. This slate of priests believe they have the gifts identified in our Diocesan profile as those we sought for the future of our life together in Christ. These candidates also bring a variety of experience to our election process. We ask that you keep them, their families, and the communities they currently serve in your prayers in the days and weeks to come.
The following 4 individuals were presented to the Diocese by the Nominating and Search Committee.
The following 2 individuals were nominated through the Petition Process.
The Standing Committee extends our thanks to all who participated in the presentation of these candidates to the Diocese. The work of the Transition Committee now begins, as they prepare to host our walkabouts in September. Please keep them in your prayers, also.
