The Episcopal Diocese of Iowa has received notification from Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael B. Curry that Bishop-elect Betsey Monnot has received the required majority of consents in the canonical consent process detailed in Canon III.11.3. The consents received have been certified by the Rev. Canon Michael Barlowe, Registrar of the General Convention.

In giving consent to her ordination and consecration, standing committees and bishops with jurisdiction attest to knowing of “no impediment on account of which” Bishop-elect Monnot ought not to be ordained as bishop, and that her election was conducted in accordance with the canons.

The Rev. Monnot was elected diocesan bishop on July 31, 2021.
