A Message from the Transition Committee

January 25, 2019
Thank you to everyone who attended last weekend’s Walkabouts with the Nominees for the 10th Bishop of Maine. Despite the weekend’s wintry weather, sessions were well attended. The meetings provided clergy and members of the Diocese the opportunity to meet the Nominees and hear their responses to questions asked.

Videos of the Augusta, Bangor and Portland Walkabouts are now available for viewing on the following links:

Preparing for the Electing Convention:
Clergy, delegates and alternates are encouraged to review these videos and Nominee profiles prior to the Electing Convention February 9th at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor. As a reminder, the Electing Convention is open to convention-registered clergy and delegates only – there will be no public or visitors’ gallery provided. Convention Registration will be held from 8:45 to 9:45am, the Convention seated 9:45am, and convened at 10am.

You are invited to watch the Electing Convention results live February 9th at 10am on the links listed above, where the Convention Agenda and Worship Program will also be posted.

Let us pray together as we continue our Quest for the 10th Bishop of Maine:

Bishop Quest Prayer, written by The Reverend Canon Nancy Moore, Chaplain
God of Grace, we give you thanks for all the blessings of our common life and ministries as the episcopal Diocese of Maine. We thank you for the faithful work of the Discernment Committee and for all who have offered themselves to your service in this season of change. May the Holy Spirit continue to bless the Transition Committee, and to infuse this process with the gifts of faith, hope and love. We give thanks and pray for Anne, Janet, Ken, Rachel, and Thomas. May they be filled with vision, courage, patience and hope as our work of discernment continues. In Christ’s name we pray, Amen
