Episcopal Bishop Calls for Election of Eventual Successor

From West Virginia-

The Rt. Rev. W. Michie Klusmeyer, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of West Virginia, has called for the election of a bishop coadjutor to be his eventual successor.

Klusmeyer made his announcement Saturday during the 142nd annual diocesan convention, which was held at Oglebay Park.

A coadjutor holds the right of succession to become head of a diocese upon the diocesan bishop’s retirement.

Klusmeyer, 63, has not set a date for his retirement. He will retain ecclesiastical authority within the diocese until he steps down. 

“I am not announcing my retirement, please know that. Calling for a coadjutor is a statement that I’m planning to retire,” he told clergy and lay delegates at the convention.
