Attending the Consecration and Ordination
The ordination of a new diocesan bishop is a joyous time for all people of the diocese, and all are encouraged to take part! The service will include a diversity of musical offerings from the congregations in our diocese, as well as participants from all our regions and groups. A number of clergy and bishops from other parts of the Episcopal Church, the Anglican Church of Mexico, and our ecumenical partners will participate. The Rev. Canon Scott Gunn, executive director of Forward Movement, will be our preacher. Together, we will pray for the Holy Spirit to empower this new season of ministry among all Episcopalians in San Diego.
The June 15 Ordination and Consecration of Bishop-Elect Susan Brown Snook is fast approaching! All are invited and welcome to attend! Processions and preludes begin at 10:30 a.m. at St. Paul’s Cathedral. The Liturgy will begin at 11:00 a.m. A reception follows the ceremony at The Abbey, located directly across Olive Street from the Cathedral.
St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral is located at 2728 Sixth Avenue, San Diego. Google Map
For those planning to attend the event in person, please note that incense will be used in the nave of St. Paul’s Cathedral. If you prefer to avoid incense, you are invited to sit in the great hall, across the queen's courtyard, where incense will not be used. Ushers will direct you to the location.
Parking will be limited in the area around the Cathedral. Please plan to carpool, ride-share or take public transportation to the ceremony. The transition committee has been negotiating a package of transportation and parking options for the festivities of consecration weekend. We invite members of the diocese to consider these transportation options:
Special Carpool Parking
The transition committee is negotiating limited reserved parking within a half block of the Cathedral for carpools and those needing additional assistance to attend the ordination and consecration. For those needing additional assistance, a shuttle will be available to take you to the cathedral from this reserved parking. Further details will be published in our next Episcopate Post.

A Prayer for Guidance
Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings with your most gracious favor, and further us with your continual help; that in all our works begun, continued, and ended in you, we may glorify your holy Name, and finally, by your mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (Book of Common Prayer, 832)
