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. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, our brothers and sisters on the Nominating and Search Committee have diligently performed the work of their charge. They have brought to us a slate of priests who 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.
We extend our thanks to Pam Pringle, Chair of the Nominating and Search Committee, and to all who served on the Committee. The work of the Transition Committee now begins, as they prepare to host our walkabouts in September. Please keep them in your prayers, also.
The Petition Process opens June 21, 2019, and will close at 5:00 PM on July 5, 2019.
