The Standing Committee of the Diocese of Indianapolis announces that the Petition Process for our next Bishop will be open on Sunday, July 10 (the day that the slate of candidates is announced) through Sunday, July 24, 2016. No petition package will be accepted before the slate is announced. The Petition Process is the means by which qualified persons can be nominated for inclusion on Slate of Candidates. Petitioners must undergo the same interviews, background checks and reference checks as the candidates named to the slate by the Search Committee. The Petition Process replaces the “nominations from the floor” option.
