Sunday Forum, December 3: “Our Next Bishop”

Sunday Forum, 9:45am in the Fleetwood Room, American Cathedral in Paris.

Our Bishop-in-Charge, Pierre Whalon, has announced that he will resign on July 31, 2019, and the process of selecting his replacement is already under way. The process began this past year with a strategic planning exercise, to take stock of where the Convocation is and where it is going as prepares for its next Episcopate. A Search and Nomination Committee and a Transition Committee have been appointed. In this forum, Anne Swardson, a member of the Convocation’s Council of Advice and Co-Chair of the Transition Committee will explain the context and the process. The forum will provide an opportunity for parishioners to discuss our own needs and future direction and to learn more about what the transition will mean for us and for our sister churches across Europe.
