FROM THE SEPTEMBER 12TH ISSUE OF THE DIOCESE of ALBANY NEWSLETTER
The special meeting of diocesan Convention to elect the Tenth Bishop of Albany convened this past Saturday and discerned the Rev. Jeremiah Williamson, Rector of Grace and Saint Stephen’s, Church, Colorado Springs, in the Diocese of Colorado, to become Bishop-Elect of the diocese and soon, by the grace of God, confirmed and consecrated the Tenth Bishop of Albany. Bishop-Elect Jeremiah received 50.91% of the clergy vote, and 74.71% of the parish vote on the fourth ballot.
The Bishop-Elect addressed the Convention on Saturday after the conclusion of our discernment. This letter from the Bishop-Elect to us all is an initial step in our new relationship. The diocese welcomes him, along with his wife, Jennifer, and their sons, Oscar, and Isaiah, warmly to our diocesan family.
