One Candidate Withdraws from Bishop Slate

On Tuesday, December 13, 2016, the Standing Committee of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina accepted the withdrawal of the Rev. Milind Sojwal from consideration in the election of the XII Bishop Diocesan of the Diocese of North Carolina. Sojwal wrote to the Standing Committee to inform them of his need to withdraw for personal reasons that do not allow him to continue with the diocesan bishop search process.

The Rev. Charles Dupree and the Rev. Samuel Rodman remain on the slate as announced on November 21. “We are very pleased that in addition to the two candidates presented by the Nominating Committee,” said the Rev. Jane Wilson, president of the Standing Committee, “we expect to announce in January one or two petition candidates as additions to the slate.”

Planning for several events and opportunities to get to know candidates in the coming months is underway by the Transition Committee. Additional information on the candidates and upcoming events will be shared on diocesan communication channels.
