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.
