The Nominees' biographical information, responses to questions, video greetings and more are being assembled at the Bishop Search website: bishopsearch.cfdiocese.org. A Forum is also being prepared where members of the Diocese may post questions to the Nominees. Another notification will be sent as soon as the site is 'live.' We apologize for the delay in the website information, but did not want to further delay publishing the names of the nominees while the finishing touches are being put on the website. We anticipate that this will be completed tomorrow. Another note will be sent out at that time.
The election of the Fourth Bishop of Central Florida will be held at a Special Convention on November 19, 2011 at Trinity Preparatory School, Winter Park, Florida.
The Rev. Timothy Nunez remains a member of the Standing Committee of the Diocese of Central Florida, however, he has recused himself from all discussions and decisions relating to the election of our next Bishop, until we have completed the election successfully. He will continue to participate normally in other Standing Committee business.
