The nominating committee for our next diocesan bishop has been hard at work since October 2017. We have made much progress. We were blessed with a wonderful response to our online survey and widespread participation in a number of listening sessions around the diocese. This input has proven valuable in creating our diocesan profile. The diocesan profile is the chief means by which we can express to those who might feel called to be our next bishop who the Diocese of San Diego is and where we are headed. The profile will also educate members of our diocese about the breadth and depth of the ministry our diocese offers to God.
The timeline above gives a broad overview of the tasks ahead. In the next few months we will begin receiving and screening applications. Our expectation is to create a short list of candidates whom we will invite to a week-long discernment retreat in the fall, after which, with much prayer, we will deliver a slate of three to five candidates to the standing committee. We expect to deliver the slate in early November 2018, at which time the standing committee will open the process to petition candidates. We look forward to the election of our next diocesan bishop in February 2019 and the consecration in June 2019. +
