As the people of the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago prepare to welcome our Bishop-elect, the Rev. Paula E. Clark, the Transition Committee invites people from across the diocese to offer gifts in support of her ministry. It is the Episcopal Church’s tradition to contribute towards a bishop-elect’s vestments and other symbols of the Office of Bishop: stoles, cloaks, mitre, crosier, ring, pectoral cross and other liturgical items. Contributions may be made online and will be processed through the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago.
The Ordination & Consecration of the Thirteenth Bishop of Chicago will take place on April 24. More information about that event, which will be held in keeping with public health restrictions in place at the time, will be published in upcoming issues of the diocesan newsletter.
Questions may be directed to Beth Petti, a member of the Transition Committee, by email.
