Local clergy, parishioners preparing for new Bishop

From Jacksonville-

The Episcopal Diocese of East Carolina will consecrate its new bishop this weekend in Greenville.

Rev. Robert Skirving was elected to lead the diocese at a special meeting of priests and lay leaders in New Bern this spring. Skirving has been a minister for the past 28 years and has served in churches in Michigan and Ontario, Canada. The vote ended a year-long search for the diocese’s eighth bishop after Bishop Clifton Daniel resigned after 15 years to serve as Bishop provisional of the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania.

Provisional Bishop Peter Lee has served in the interim.
