Choosing a new Bishop


If you’ve been listening to the prayers of the church each Sunday, you know we’ve been praying for those who will select a new Bishop for Colorado and a new Priest for our church. Now, you can do more than pray, you can help with the choice. Three Priests have gone through rigorous evaluation to become finalists for Bishop of the Episcopal Church in Colorado. You can learn more about each of them at There you will find videos, statements, and resumes for the candidates.

A bit about the process:

Our Good Shepherd delegates to convention are Karin Elsen, Donna White, Deborah Sampson, and Becky Beall-Moore. They will attend convention at the end of October and electing the new Bishop will be the highlight of convention. As our delegates, they want to vote your will. In addition to the information on the diocesan website, you will have an opportunity to meet the candidates at a regional walk-about on Sunday, October 7th from 2 to 6 pm at St. John’s Cathedral in Denver. Also in October, you will be able to vote on the Good Shepherd website to let our delegates know who you prefer.

If you have questions, contact Karin Elsen ( or Deborah Sampson (
