As explained in the material that can be found here, the petition process is akin to the prior practice of having “nominations from the floor” with two major differences: 1) there is time for a background check of petition candidates; and 2) there is time for petition candidates to become known to the diocese through the required published information and participation in the walkabouts. The deadline for nominations by petitions is 5 p.m. March 18.The final slate of candidates will be announced by the Standing Committee after the close of the petition process. Members of the diocese will have the opportunity to become acquainted with all candidates on the final slate of candidates during the walkabouts to be held May 17-19. The special convention will be held on June 1. The ordination and consecration of the new bishop will be held Feb. 8, 2020.The priest elected will succeed Bishop Wendell Gibbs Jr., who in January 2018 announced his plans to retire at the end of 2019.
