Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,
It takes a diocese to call a bishop. On behalf of the Call/Transition Committee, we want to thank you for making this process such a success. The work of so many faithful Episcopalians helped make the call of Bishop Daniel Gutierrez possible.
Beginning with the Week of Discernment, to the Call Convention, to the Farewell Service for Bishop Dan, to the glorious Service of Ordination and Consecration - none of it could have happened were it not for the role each of you played throughout this journey.
You helped set the foundation to continue building the Kingdom of God in the "Come and See" Diocese of Pennsylvania. We give thanks to God for you and your gifts, and for our new bishop, The Rt. Rev. Daniel G.P. Gutierrez.
Rejoice and be glad in it!
In gratitude and faith,
Kim Shiley & George Whitfield
Co-chairpersons, Call/Transition Committee
Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania
