The Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe has received notification from Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael B. Curry and Registrar of General Convention, the Rev. Canon Michael Barlowe, that Bishop-Elect Mark D. W. Edington has received the required majority of consents in the canonical consent process detailed in Canon III.11.3.

In giving consent to his ordination and consecration, Standing Committees and bishops with jurisdiction attest to knowing of “no impediment on account of which” Bishop-Elect Edington ought not to be ordained as bishop, and that his election was conducted in accordance with the Canons.

The Rev. Mark D. W. Edington was elected Bishop on October 20.  Presiding Bishop Curry will officiate at his April 6 ordination and consecration service.
