Update on the Bishop Search and Nomination Committee

Contributed by: The Rev. Ed Zelley, President, Standing Committee

Dear Sisters and Brothers of the Diocese of New Jersey:

Greetings. I write to update you on the work of the Bishop Search and Nomination Committee. As you may recall the Committee was to choose six at-large members to ensure that the Committee is as representative of the Diocese as possible.

I am pleased to let you know that those six at-large spots were voted on and filled on Tuesday November 9 by the Committee. These additional members are:

  • Mr. Juan Delgado, St. Andrews Camden
  • The Rev. Jorge Antoneli, St. John’s Elizabeth
  • Mr. Micah Cronin, Trinity Princeton
  • The Rev Allen Wakabayashi, Episcopal Church at Princeton
  • The Rev Chase Danford, Trinity Asbury Park
  • Mr. Tal Kramer, St. Thomas Glassboro

I hope that you will agree with me that the Committee now is quite representative of the diversity of our Diocese.

The Committee will be meeting for a retreat to lay out their timeline and to familiarize themselves with the process.

The Standing Committee and I continue to seek people interested in being members of the Transition Committee and I hope to be able to communicate with you soon who the chair and members of that committee are.

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Ed Zelley
President, Standing Committee
