Bishop Search & Nomination Committee announces listening sessions


The Search & Nomination Committee invites all laypeople and clergy in the diocese to attend a bishop search listening session. What the committee learns will guide them as they write our diocesan profile, a detailed description of the diocese 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:

Saturday, August 3, 10-11:30am, St Gregory’s, Deerfield

Saturday, August 3, 1-2:30pm, Emmanuel, Rockford

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


If you’re not able to attend one of these sessions, an online survey will be available later this summer. Additional listening sessions just for clergy will be announced soon.
