Glasspool needs one more Standing Committee consent

by

The Diocese of Los Angeles reports that Mary Glasspool has received 55 consents from Standing Committees out of 56 needed.

The Standing Committee of the Diocese of Los Angeles reported March 3 that within the last 57 days it has received 55 of the majority of 56 consents needed to the Dec. 5 election of the Rev. Canon Mary Glasspool as a bishop suffragan of the Diocese of Los Angeles.

The Office of the Presiding Bishop receives the Bishops’ votes.

All the info is here. If either group does not reach 56 - she does not receive consent. The PBs office released the number of bishops after the Standing Committees consented for Bruce. When the vote is 56 and the bishops reach that number the office will probably let us know. Otherwise they will wait until the 120 days (from Jan 8) has elapsed

With one more vote, Mary Glasspool will have a majority of standing committee votes. Hooray! What only the Presiding Bishop knows is how many bishops have voted their consent. Does she need consents from a majority of standing committees as well as a majority of consents from bishops? What happens if a standing committee votes "yes" and the bishop of that diocese votes "no," or the other way around?

Thanks in advance for this information.

I am not well versed in this and have a few questions: How many standing committees have yet to report in? Does it look like this is going to happen? If so, what then, I mean in terms of the reactions around the Communion?
