On June 17, Lee issued the following update to the diocese, saying he now plans to retire at the end of 2020.Dear friends,Chicago Bishop Jeffrey Lee. Photo: Diocese of ChicagoYou may remember that, in March, as we began to understand the ways in which the COVID-19 pandemic would disrupt our plans and priorities, I postponed both my retirement originally scheduled for August and the bishop election that we had originally planned to hold this Saturday.Although the pandemic will not come to an end for some time, your creative and resourceful responses to the challenge of worshipping and gathering online have made it clear that the future of our diocese is in excellent hands. With gratitude for your spirit and faithfulness, I will now plan to retire at the end of 2020.Thanks to our new ability to gather in ways we previously would not have imagined, and after consultation with the Standing Committee, we now plan to elect the next bishop of Chicago at a virtual electing convention on December 12. The details of this event and the opportunities to meet the nominees that will precede it are still being developed. Please look for more news coming soon from the Standing Committee and on the bishop search and transition website.Faithfully,Bishop Jeffrey Lee Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Bath, NC Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Pittsburgh, PA Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Rector Washington, DC Rector Collierville, TN Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Featured Jobs & Calls Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Belleville, ILlast_img
