Update from the Transition Committee
Guided by the Holy Spirit, the work of the transition committee has begun! The diocesan transition committee held its retreat at Grace, San Marcos on March 9-10. Sixteen members of our diocese gathered to learn about our call to serve the diocese, our duties and responsibilities. Commissioned by the standing committee, our work will progress over the next 18 months. We are charged with assisting and guiding the transition process of our diocese as we elect and consecrate a new bishop. We are also charged with welcoming the bishop-elect and family to the diocese.
Our retreat included morning and evening prayer, committee and sub-committee meetings, as well as planning for ongoing communication to the members of the diocese about our work. We will focus our efforts on communication, the electing convention, walk-abouts, support of the candidates, the bishop-elect and family, and the consecration.
Grace, San Marcos staff welcomed us warmly with smiles and delicious meals. We thank them for providing a comfortable, sacred space.
We ask all members of our diocese to keep us in their prayers as we commence our work.
Your servants in Christ,
The Transition Committee
