After nine months of prayerful discernment, the bishop search committee is pleased to present the following slate of persons to be considered for the next bishop of Arkansas.
The Rev. Canon John T. W. Harmon, Rector, Trinity Episcopal Church, Washington, D.C.
The Rev. Mary Vano, Rector, St. Margaret's Episcopal Church, Little Rock, Ark.
There will be opportunities to learn more about the candidates at four public meet-and-greets to be held August 3–6 around the diocese. There will be a meet-and-greet at St. Alban's on Friday, August 4, at 5:30 pm. Childcare will be provided, and we will host a reception following the presentation. The electing convention will be held August 19, 2023, at Trinity Cathedral in Little Rock. Our delegates are Marianne Maynard and Linda McCarty.
Each candidate will have a primary contact, assigned by the Transitions Committee, shepherding them through the process. We ask that others refrain from direct engagement with the candidates so they may balance this discernment process with their current ministry roles. Any questions you have for the candidates themselves can be submitted online for use at the meet-and-greets. Any questions about the process can be directed to the Transitions Committee or the Standing Committee.
