Guided by the Holy Spirit, voters at the Jan 28 Electing Convention will determine the next Bishop of the Diocese of New Jersey. But only those who register by Jan. 7 will be able to vote. Registering now will greatly aid in the planning for the Electing Convention on Jan. 28.
Registration for voters (canonically resident clergy, certified deputies, and only alternates replacing deputies) onsite and online will end on Jan. 7. Non-voting members and guests may join the livestream on YouTube using a link made available closer to the date.
If you check off that you are attending online, you will receive another link to register on Zoom to receive a login link.
The Electing Convention is on Jan. 28. This will be a hybrid gathering at Trinity Cathedral, 801 West State Street, Trenton, New Jersey and on Zoom.
The sole purpose of this Convention is to elect the 13th Bishop of the Diocese of New Jersey. Following 7:30 a.m. check in and 9:00 a.m. prayers, the opening business of the convention will commence.
Clergy entitled to vote at this Electing Convention must be canonically resident in the Diocese. Lay Persons entitled to vote must have been certified by the rector, vicar, or clerk of the vestry of their congregations as Deputies or as Alternates replacing Deputies who cannot attend. Certifications filed prior to the 2022 Annual Diocesan Convention are still valid until successors are elected.
Attendees must bring their own devices for voting needs—iPads, phones, etc.
