The Discernment Committee is hard at work interviewing dozens of candidates for the position of 10th Bishop of Maine. The interviews will take place online over eight weeks, ending on August 31. The interviewees are from all over the country and hold an enormous variety of positions. Each is bringing a great deal to the interview conversations and they are all asking important, challenging questions of the Discernment Committee about the Diocese of Maine.
At a meeting early in September the Committee will meet to decide which candidates will move forward and be invited to the four-day Candidate’s Retreat in October. The Slate will be announced by the Standing Committee in late Fall.
