GREENWICH, NEW YORK — The Episcopal Diocese of Albany announces with praise and thanks to God that Bishop-Elect Jeremiah Williamson has received the requisite consents to his election as the Tenth Bishop of Albany. He was elected at a Special Convention of the Diocese on September 9, 2023. Under the Constitutions and Canons of the Episcopal Church, before a bishop-elect can be consecrated and assume jurisdiction, a majority of bishops of the Episcopal Church with jurisdiction, and a majority of the Standing Committees of the dioceses of the Episcopal Church, must separately consent to the election.
