Search for the Eleventh Bishop of Southern Virginia

On February 28, 2018, Bishop Todd Ousley, from the Presiding Bishop's Office of Pastoral Development who oversees the transition process for the Episcopal Church, met with the diocesan Standing Committee to outline the search and transition process. The Standing Committee, with The Rev. Conor Alexander as President, will oversee the search and transition process as Southern Virginia elects Bishop Hollerith's successor.

Below are links to announcements and other information about the status of the search process.
