The Rev. Canon Michael Hunn, canon to the presiding bishop for ministry within the Episcopal Church, is one of two nominees by petition in the Diocese of North Carolina.
The diocese is seeking its 12th bishop, who will succeed Presiding Bishop Michael Curry. Two other nominees, announced Nov. 21, are:
- The Rev. Charles T. Dupree, rector of Trinity Church, Bloomington, Indiana
- The Rev. Samuel S. Rodman III, special projects officer in the Diocese of Massachusetts
The diocese will elect the new bishop March 4 during a one-day convention in Greensboro.
The Rev. Milind Sojwal, rector of All Angels’ Church in Manhattan, withdrew from the slate in mid-December.
