May - August 2014 consecrations, elections and consents in the Episcopal Church
In the next four months – May 1 to August 31 - the Episcopal Church will witness the consecration of one bishop and the election of three bishops.
One consecration of a bishop is slated for May to August. Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori will officiate at the ordination service.
May 17: Diocese of New York Bishop Suffragan - The Rev. Allen Shin, elected bishop suffragan on December 7, 2013.
During May to August, three bishop elections are scheduled:
May 2-3: Diocese of Maryland Bishop Suffragan
May 3: Diocese of Mississippi
May 17: Diocese of East Carolina
Canonical Consent Process
At this time, there are no canonical consent processes underway for May to August. However, the Rev. Alan Gates was elected Bishop of the Diocese of Massachusetts on April 5; therefore, it is anticipated that the canonical consent process will commence for the successful candidate during this time period.
