Consecration in Haiti Postponed

Bishop-elect Joseph K. Delicat

Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry has postponed the consecration of the Bishop Coadjutor of Haiti, which had been scheduled for Jan. 5.

Curry wrote that as of Dec. 5 “a majority of bishops with jurisdiction in the Episcopal Church have not yet consented to the ordination and consecration of the Venerable Joseph Kerwin Delicat as the Bishop Coadjutor of Haiti. In order to help those across the Church in making travel and other plans, please know that I am postponing the previously scheduled ordination and consecration to a date to be determined.”

Bishops and standing committees have until Jan. 3 to give or withhold consent to Delicat’s election.
