Bishop Search & Nomination Committee announces additional listening sessions in September


The Search & Nomination Committee invites all laypeople and clergy in the diocese to attend a bishop search listening session. Input from listening sessions will guide the committee as they write our diocesan profile, a detailed description of the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago that helps applicants learn more about us. Sessions will focus on how you see God at work in the diocese, what challenges we face together, and what we seek in our next bishop.

Join the conversation:

Thursday, August 8, 7-8:30pm, Ascension, Chicago

Saturday, August 10, 10-11:30am, St. Edmund’s, Chicago

Saturday, August 10, 1-2:30pm, St. Paul’s, Peoria

Sunday, August 18, 3-4:30pm, St. Mark’s, Glen Ellyn

Thursday, September 5, 7-8:30pm, Grace, New Lenox
