Transition Committee Update
The planning for the consecration is underway. The Transition Committee is working closely with the Bishop-elect, the Presiding Bishop’s Office, Bishop Ely and the Diocesan Ministry Support Team, and the Standing Committee to prepare for the consecration of the 11th Bishop of Vermont. Please save the date of Saturday, September 28. When the majority of consents are received from the Bishops and Standing Committees of the Church (see this article about the consent process), more details and the official invitation to the consecration will be announced. Please continue to watch for updates in every issue of The Mountain. Questions can be addressed to us at TC@diovermont.org.
The second of two farewell events to honor Bishop Tom and Ann Ely will be held on Saturday, June 29 at St. Michael’s Church, Brattleboro. Please join us for an evening prayer service with Taizé music starting at 5:00 p.m. A reception will follow with a brief program.
