20100507-LA consecrations

Los Angeles consecrations

The Coalition rejoices that Diane Bruce and Mary Glasspool will be consecrated as bishops in Los Angeles on 15 May.

Diane Bruce and Mary Glasspool were each elected by large majorities of the laity, clergy and bishops of the Diocese of Los Angeles. Subsequently, their elections were confirmed by clear majorities, both of the bishops with jurisdiction in the Episcopal Church of the United States and of the standing committees of that church’s dioceses.

20091210-LA election

Los Angeles and Uganda

The Coalition warmly welcomes the election of two new suffragan bishops for the Episcopal diocese of Los Angeles, and notes:

  • that the election has been carried out with a close regard to the norms and constitution of that church;
  • that its transparency contrasts favourably with the still opaque processes by which Church of England bishops are appointed.
