The Nominating Committee was established and charged by the Standing Committee. With the announcement of the slate, a Transition Committee, also reporting to the Standing Committee and comprising lay and clergy members from across the diocese, implements the next stages of the election process.The nominees will be in Mississippi, April 7-11 and will be introduced at three open question-and-answer sessions. The sessions will be held at Coast Episcopal School, Long Beach on April 8; St. Andrew’s School, Ridgeland on April 9; and All Saints Church, Grenada on April 10.  While in Mississippi, the nominees will visit the John M. Allin Diocesan House, St. Andrew’s Cathedral, the Duncan M. Gray Camp and Conference Center and various ministries of the diocese.The election will take place on Saturday, May 3 at St. Andrew’s Cathedral in Jackson.  All canonically resident clergy of the diocese and lay delegates vote separately as “orders”; a majority of votes on the same ballot from both the clergy and lay orders is required for election.Pending consent from a majority of the Episcopal Church’s diocesan bishops and a majority of dioceses (via their Standing Committees), the consecration and ordination of the bishop-elect is scheduled to take place on Saturday, Sept. 27 at the Jackson Convention Complex in Jackson, with Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori presiding. March 4, 2014 at 11:35 am I’ve known Marian Dulaney Fortner for over 30 years. We first became friends during law school and then rented a house together while we were young lawyers. Marian has always been an inspiration to me and, probably not intentionally, made me want to be a better Christian. She woke up every morning in the wee hours to read morning prayer and then study the Bible. When she told me she wanted to become a priest, I was not surprised at all. She’s a natural! Now that she’s been nominated for bishop, again, I am not surprised at all. She’s smart; a natural leader; and exudes love to everyone she meets. She works very hard and, having been a lawyer, knows how to prioritize, and get things done. The most remarkable thing about Marian is that she accomplishes things without a bit of stress, at least to my eye. I encourage the voters to vote for Marianl I love her very much and I’m sure the diocese will too. Thanks for your consideration.

I really appreciate her having the gay and lesbians together for a service, and I think that is wonderful. I approve same sex marriage in the churches and I hope she will let the priests bless the same sex marriage. I wish her luck!

As rector of St. Columb’s, he was my priest. During a time when my father was so ill and dying, he was an ever present friend. I think Mississippi would be in good hands having Brian as their Bishop. He has done wonders working with the fine folks at St. Columb’s. The new Nave is a fulfillment of long years of dreaming and hard work. Thanks Be To God, the parish had Brian to lead them.
