Seeking the IXth Bishop of Florida
A Letter from the Nominating Committee
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Our search for a bishop coadjutor has entered a deeply Spirit-driven phase as the period to receive nominations and applications has closed. We thank you all for your prayerful nominations of potential candidates and your respect for the confidential nature of this process.
Our diocese is richly blessed and has received many applications from possible candidates. We are truly grateful for all those who are heeding the call to be our Shepherd.
In the coming weeks, the Nominating Committee will conduct in-depth interviews with each candidate to better understand their call to the episcopacy. And in doing so, we will continue to seek the Holy Spirit’s path to the right person for our diocese.
In February, we will invite select candidates to a discernment retreat during which we will explore their call to leadership more deeply in preparation to provide a slate of candidates to the Standing Committee in March.
As we review each candidate, we ask your continued prayers for us, for those who have applied, and for the future of our diocese.
Peace and Blessings to you all as we enter Advent and the season of the birth of our savior.
A Prayer for the Election of Our Bishop
