First bishop of the Anglican Military Ordinariate elected

From Anglican Journal-

In the first election of its kind, Col. the Ven. Nigel Shaw, director of chaplaincy operations for the Canadian Army, Navy and Air Force, was chosen as the new bishop-elect of the Anglican Military Ordinariate March 5 via an electronic electoral synod.

“It’s very humbling, at one level, to realize how much trust has been placed in you by the people of the Ordinariate,” Shaw said in an interview. “The thought of being able to continue to minister with the community that I’ve been a part of and loved so dearly for so long is really exciting.”

Shaw said that one of his priorities as bishop is the expansion of lay people’s role within the Ordinariate in the wider church.
