The Episcopal Church in Minnesota has received notification from Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael B. Curry and Registrar of General Convention, the Rev. Canon Michael Barlowe, that Bishop-Elect Craig W. Loya has received the required majority of consents in the canonical consent process detailed in Canon III.11.3.

In giving consent to his ordination and consecration, Standing Committees and bishops with jurisdiction attest to knowing of “no impediment on account of which” Bishop-Elect Loya ought not to be ordained as bishop, and that his election was conducted in accordance with the Canons.

The Very Rev. Craig W. Loya was elected Bishop on January 25, 2020.
