Bishops, Bishops Everywhere

There are four bishop elections in The Episcopal Church today, in the Dioceses of Atlanta, Rhode Island, Western Massachusetts and Texas.  The first three are electing Diocesan Bishops and Texas will elect a Suffragan.

Please keep all the clergy and people in these dioceses in your prayers today!

Almighty and everlasting Father, you have given the Holy
Spirit to abide with us for ever: Bless, we pray, with his grace
and presence, the bishops and other clergy and the laity
here (or now, or soon to be) assembled in your Name, that
your Church, being preserved in true faith and godly
discipline, may fulfill all the mind of him who loved it and
gave himself for it, your Son Jesus Christ our Savior; who
lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one
God, now and for ever. Amen.


The results of the four elections are

The Very Rev. Robert c. Wright, Atlanta
The Very Rev. Nicholas Knisely, Rhode Island
The Rev. Douglas John Fisher, Western Massachusetts
The rev. Jeff fisher, Suffragan, Texas
