House of Bishops will not meet in May; poll results guide decision


After a poll of its membership, the House of Bishops will not convene for a suggested special meeting in May, the canon to the Presiding Bishop announced April 16.

“After receiving a large number of responses to our poll regarding the need for a May meeting of the House, we can confirm from the results that there will not be a meeting in May,” the Rev. Canon Charles Robertson wrote in an April 16 letter to the bishops.

Among “all who were in attendance at Camp Allen” when the bishops last met March 7-12 “there was no clear sense from the House at that time that such a [May] meeting would be necessary,” Robertson wrote. "This is the reason the poll was suggested.

“We will indeed proceed as planned with the post-Lambeth meeting in September in Salt Lake City, and further details about the specific location and registration will be made available at the end of May or beginning of June.”
