Diocese of Southern Virginia Profile
To initiate the search for our future bishop, the Nominating/Search Committee publishes a detailed profile of our Diocese. It was completed on February 1st. Here’s the link for that Profile.
The Nominating/Search Committee invite all Laity and Clergy to come to one of our Convocation Listening Sessions. We will share what we are learning from the responses to our questionnaire and we want to hear from you the people of the diocese. These Sharing Sessions will help us to complete a vibrant and living profile of our diocese, one that reflects who we are. There is a meeting planned for each convocation. If you are unable to attend the meeting in your own convocation please come and join us at one of the other sessions. Here is the link for the complete schedule of all the listening sessions: Schedule of the Listening Sessions.
Update from the Standing Committee, September 27, 2018
Our Diocesan Nominating/Search Committee and Transition Committees are already hard at work with all that the Standing Committee is asking them to do, on your behalf. You can find the Charges we gave them at their initial retreat here. Very soon you will be asked for your input, and we encourage everyone to participate. It’s important that all our voices are heard.
- The Nomination/Search Committee interviews and selects candidates to present to Standing Committee for nomination as the next Bishop of Southern Virginia.
- The Transition Committee’s key responsibilities include walkabouts, assist in the election process, ordination & consecration in conjunction with the Diocesan Liturgical Commission, and pastoral care of those in the process.
