Dear People of the Diocese of Olympia,
It is my great pleasure to announce that sufficient consents have been received – from both a majority of the diocesan Standing Committees and bishops exercising jurisdiction in The Episcopal Church (as detailed in Canon III.10.5), to the reception of the Most Reverend Melissa Skelton into The Episcopal Church from The Anglican Church in Canada. She is now able to serve the Diocese of Olympia as our Bishop Provisional. You can read the full text of the press release from The Episcopal Church below.
Please join us in celebrating on this happy occasion!
President, Standing Committee
Successful Canonical Consent for the Most Rev. Melissa Skelton
