Diocese of Virginia Announcements
Bishop Suffragan Search Process
The Suffragan Search Committee asks that there be wide participation in the discernment process. Information on the search process is found by clicking here.
Message Specifically to Our Region, the Fredericksburg Region
The Search / Nominating Committee for our second Bishop Suffragan would like to conduct Listening Sessions to gather people’s views about the desired characteristics for the next Bishop Suffragan. This information will be used in our Diocesan profile to help candidates understand their vital role in working collaboratively with Bishop Johnston and Bishop Goff to take our Diocese into the future. The new Bishop Suffragan will have Campus Ministry as one of the responsibilities, so insight from regions supporting local campus ministries will be helpful. A member of the Committee will be present. In the Fredericksburg Region (formerly Region 1), sessions are scheduled for 7:00 PM at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 5486 St. Paul’s Road, King George on Monday, February 26th and at Trinity Episcopal Church, 825 College Avenue, Fredericksburg on Tuesday, February 27th. This is an opportunity for you to have your voice heard in the selection process. We look forward to seeing you at one of these meetings. For questions, please contact your priest or Carolyne Ashton, Region President (email@example.com) or The Very Rev. Catherine Hicks, Dean (firstname.lastname@example.org).
