The Episcopal Diocese of San Diego
Posted Oct 24, 2018

In this nominating process, the Standing Committee of the diocese charged the Bishop Nominating Committee (BNC) with screening candidates and bringing a slate of nominees to the Standing Committee. The BNC did present its slate to the Standing Committee on Monday, October 15. The Standing Committee, after due consideration, has approved a single candidate, the Rev. Canon Susan Brown Snook, to be a nominee for election.

A Petition Period is now open for others to submit applications by petition. This period has been extended to now close at 5 p.m. on Friday, November 16. If petitions are received, and found to be complete, those candidates will be submitted for complete background and reference checks, and if then approved by the Standing Committee, will be added to the slate of nominees, and invited to participate in the January Walkabout, along with the Rev. Canon Snook.
