Four regional forums with the soon-to-be-named candidates for bishop coadjutor of the Diocese of Los Angeles have been scheduled by the search committee to provide opportunities to meet and confer with prospective nominees.
All in the diocese are welcome to attend the sessions, and to view the Saturday-morning plenary via webcast. The format will include break-out sessions with individual candidates following a plenary session at each site. The schedule is as follows:
Orange County: Friday, October 7, 6 – 9 p.m., St. George’s Episcopal Church, 23802 Avenida de la Carlota, Laguna Hills;
Los Angeles County: Saturday, October 8, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., Campbell Hall Episcopal School, Laurel Canyon Blvd., North Hollywood, with webcast of plenary session via the diocesan website, www.ladiocese.org;
Ventura County/Santa Barbara County: Saturday, October 8, 3 – 6 p.m., St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 3290 Loma Vista Road, Ventura;
Inland Empire: Sunday, October 9, 1 – 4 p.m., Trinity Episcopal Church, 419 S. 4th Street, Redlands.
The forums will occur in advance of Diocesan Convention’s Dec. 2 – 3 election of the bishop coadjutor, who, following the receipt of necessary consents from the dioceses and bishops of the wider Episcopal Church, will succeed Bishop Diocesan J. Jon Bruno upon his retirement. The search committee plans to announce the candidates in early September.
Inquiries related to the forums may be directed to the Rev. Canon Julian Bull, search committee chair and head of Campbell Hall, firstname.lastname@example.org.
