The Diocese of West Texas has released a profile and welcomes nominees as it searches for a bishop coadjutor. The diocese’s standing committee is receiving the nominations, which must be made by clergy or elected delegates/alternates to the diocesan council. Nominations deadline is July 31.
The election is scheduled for October 25 at TMI–The Episcopal School of Texas in San Antonio. The first ballot will serve as a formal nominating ballot, whereby potential nominees may become official nominees for the office.
The bishop coadjutor will serve with the Rt. Rev. Gary R. Lillibridge, Bishop of West Texas, beginning in January. Bishop Lillibridge intends to retire in 2017, which marks the 35th anniversary of his ordination to the diaconate.
