[Episcopal News Service] The Province II Court of Review has released its Report of Findings regarding the contestation of the election of the bishop coadjutor of the Diocese of Haiti.
Following the June 2 election of the Ven. Joseph Kerwin Delicat as bishop coadjutor of the Diocese of Haiti, a group of lay and clergy delegates to the Electing Convention filed written objections to the election process. Canon III.11.8 (a) outlines the process for contesting the election process.
As required by Title III.8, the presiding bishop referred the matter to the Province II Court of Review for investigation of the complaint. (Province II includes the Diocese of Haiti.) The Court’s Report of Findings is here. Copies of the report will be distributed to bishops with jurisdiction and all Diocesan Standing Committees as part of the election consent process.
Dioceses have 120 days after requests for consents are sent out to give or withhold their consent to a diocesan election.
