All petition candidates for bishop must have six nominators (three clergy members and three laypeople, four of whom are delegates to our electing convention.) This online form (below) is the only way a nomination will be accepted and must be received by November 16 at 5 p.m. The Bishop Nominating Committee welcomes your nominations of potential candidates to be considered in the discernment process to call the fifth bishop of San Diego. It is of great importance that as a nominator you have discussed this with the person you would like to nominate for our fifth bishop and received their consent to do so. Due to the confidentiality of this process, nominators will only receive an acknowledgement of receipt. Please Note: YOU MUST HAVE THE CONSENT OF THE PERSON YOU ARE NOMINATING. Contact information must be supplied and accurate in order for the committee to contact your nominee with instructions for the next step in this process. May God bless us all in our mutual discernment. Thank you for your engagement in this prayerful process. This is not the form for the applicant. Applicants for bishop, please apply here. This form does not save your work. We recommend that you formulate your answers with a word processor and then cut and paste your answers.
