Adapted from the Diocese of Los Angeles
The Rev. Canon John H. Taylor, vicar of St. John Chrysostom Church and School in Rancho Santa Margarita, is a nominee by petition as the Diocese of Los Angeles seeks a bishop coadjutor.
Taylor, 62, has been vicar of St. John Chrysostom, a south Orange County congregation with an affiliated day school of 425 students, pre-K to eighth grade, since 2004. From 1990 to 2007, he was executive director of the Richard M. Nixon Presidential Library and Museum, and served the former president as chief of staff.
The Rt. Rev. J. Jon Bruno appointed him as an honorary canon in 2008.
Taylor is the sixth nominee. The election will occur during the diocesan convention scheduled for Dec. 2-3 in Ontario, California. The bishop coadjutor will become the diocese’s bishop when Bruno retires in late 2018.
The diocese’s Episcopal News will publish statements from the six nominees, together with further biographical information, on Oct. 5.
