Statement on the announcement of Bishop Laura J. Ahrens as candidate for election as 11th bishop  of 
the Episcopal Diocese of Delaware

May 6, 2016

I am delighted to learn that the Episcopal Diocese of Delaware has chosen the Rt. Rev. Laura J. Ahrens as a nominee for election as the 11th  Bishop of Delaware.  

As we well know here in the Episcopal Church in Connecticut, Bishop Laura is a Christian leader of deep faith and incredible gifts who is passionate about empowering followers of Jesus sent in God's mission. Any diocese would be blessed to have her as their bishop.

We assure Bishop Laura, the other nominees, and the people of the Diocese of Delaware of our prayers as they move forward in the election of the 11th Bishop of Delaware.
The Rt. Rev. Ian T. Douglas, Ph.D.
Bishop Diocesan
