Roles and Responsibilities
As we transition from the 10th to the 11th Bishop of Vermont, the Transition Committee will first assist the Diocese in bidding farewell to the Rt. Rev. Thomas Ely and his wife Ann for their faithful ministry among us with celebrations around the Diocese. Secondly, the Transition Committee will work closely with the Standing Committee and the Bishop Discernment and Nominating Committee in pastoring the bishop candidates, supporting the election process, welcoming the bishop-elect, and planning the consecration of the 11th Bishop of Vermont. The Transition Committee is appointed by the Standing Committee of the Diocese.
The Rev. Todd McKee has accepted the responsibility of serving as chair of the Transition Committee.
