Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has issued the following statement:
As of this date, Dec. 5, 2018, a majority of bishops with jurisdiction in the Episcopal Church have not yet consented to the ordination and consecration of the Venerable Joseph Kerwin Delicat as the bishop coadjutor of Haiti. In order to help those across the Church in making travel and other plans, please know that I am postponing the previously scheduled ordination and consecration to a date to be determined. The consent process concludes on Jan. 3, 2019.
Please continue to hold all of our brothers and sisters of the Diocese of Haiti in your prayers.
The Most Reverend Michael B. Curry
Presiding Bishop and Primate
The Episcopal Church
