Critical election for Anglican Church

From Barbados-

On Wednesday, the 14th Bishop of Barbados will be chosen by an Elective Synod of the Anglican Diocese at the Ivan Harewood Centre adjoining the Christ Church Parish. The successful candidate will succeed the Most Rev. Dr John Holder, who retired at the end of February as the Diocesan and Archbishop of the West Indies upon reaching the mandatory age of 70.

Dr Holder had been at the helm of the local diocese since 2000 and for the last eight years, he doubled as primate of the Province of the West Indies. It was in 2009 that regional bishops elevated him as the successor to the Most Rev. Drexel Gomez, a Bahamian who was chosen by regional bishops in 1972 to fill the Barbados See.

Rev. Gomez [stepped into that role] after the Elective Synod failed to agree on a replacement to the late Lewis Evans when he retired as Bishop.
