A letter to all Episcopalians (printed below) details the process for the nomination and selection of a search committee, the duties and the time line.
“This letter is an invitation for members of the Episcopal Church to nominate individuals to serve on the search committee,” notes the Rev. Canon Michael Hunn and the Rev Canon Anthony Guillén in the letter. “The search committee will include 6 – 8 members, and will be constituted to be broadly representative and diverse.”
The following is the letter to all Episcopalians:
