Three bishop candidates – 2 women – make list for Episcopal Church

From Alabama-

Three candidates have been named in the search for a successor to Bishop John McKee “Kee” Sloan, head of the Episcopal Diocese of Alabama.

Sloan announced on Feb. 9 that he plans to retire next year.

He called for the election of a bishop coadjutor, who would assist him and then succeed him when he retires at the end of 2020.

On Sunday, the committee tasked with coming up with a slate of candidates announced three finalists, two of them women.

“At the start of that work over 30 people expressed interest in discerning whether or not they felt called to be in this process,” wrote the Rev. Candice B. Frazer, president of the standing committee. “That number diminished with each stage of the process as both potential candidates and the committee discerned the potential call until the final three were selected.”
