Presiding Bishop postpones consecration in the Diocese of Haiti

Presiding Bishop postpones consecration in the Diocese of Haiti

A release from the Episcopal Church:

Presiding Bishop postpones previously scheduled ordination and consecration in the Diocese of Haiti 

[December 5, 2018] Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has issued the following statement:

As of this date, 5 December 2018, a majority of bishops with jurisdiction in the Episcopal Church have not yet consented to the ordination and consecration of the Venerable Joseph Kerwin Delicat as the Bishop Coadjutor of Haiti. In order to help those across the Church in making travel and other plans, please know that I am postponing the previously scheduled ordination and consecration to a date to be determined. The consent process concludes on 3 January 2019.

Please continue to hold all of our brothers and sisters of the Diocese of Haiti in your prayers.

The Most Reverend Michael B. Curry
Presiding Bishop and Primate

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
