EPISCOPAL DIOCESE OF NEW YORK ELECTS NEW BISHOP SUFFRAGAN

At 2.40 p.m. today, December 7, at a special election convention held at Manhattan’s Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, the Rev. Allen K. Shin was declared the bishop suffragan-elect of the Episcopal Diocese of New York. The new bishop suffragan will replace Bishop Catherine Roskam, who retired at the end of 2011, and will work alongside the diocesan bishop, the Rt. Rev. Andrew M.L. Dietsche.

 Shin, who is currently rector of St. John’s Church, Huntington, LI, NY was elected on the 4th round of balloting by a majority of the active clergy. A brief biography of the bishop elect may be found atwww.suffragan.episcopalny.org  (where you will also find information on the other nominees and videos of all).

 Shin was one of five candidates nominated in early October by a special Committee to Elect a Bishop, which began work following the call for the election of a suffragan by Bishop Dietsche’s predecessor as diocesan, Bishop Mark S. Sisk, at the diocese’s annual convention in November 2012. Bishop Sisk retired, and Bishop Dietsche was installed as XVI Bishop of New York, on February 2, 2013.

 The bishop suffragan-elect must now receive the consent of a majority both of the other diocesan bishops of the Episcopal Church and of the standing committees of the Church’s dioceses, before being consecrated in the Cathedral of St. John the Divine on Saturday, May 17, 2014.
