Dates have been set for the regional all-candidates meetings for the upcoming election for coadjutor bishop of Huron Diocese.
Candidates have been invited to attend either in person or via technology (for example, Skype).
Each candidate will be given five minutes to introduce themselves and answer why they feel called to be our next bishop. Then candidates will spread out around the hall so people can approach the them individually and in groups to ask questions and generally get to know them.
Each evening is intended to help the leadership in our diocesan parishes (lay delegates to Synod, clergy and wardens), to make their prayerfully informed choice but it is not limited to just those parish members. All are welcome.
There will also be refreshments available at each meeting.
