Wanted: Bishop for Episcopal Diocese

| Saturday, August 27, 2011 12:00 p.m

Names are being accepted as candidates for bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh.

The position opens as interim Bishop Kenneth L. Price’s term ends. He was appointed in 2008 when then-bishop Robert Duncan suddenly left the church.

Rich Creehan, spokesman for the diocese, said Price’s departure was part of an agreement stipulating he would not hold the position for more than three years. Price has been a positive addition to the church, Creehan said, and the goal is to find someone who can carry on his legacy.

To apply or nominate someone, the diocese requests people read the “Diocesan Profile,” a 28-page document that serves as a detailed job posting. To create the parameters for the job description, the diocese — composed of 32 congregations in 11 counties — held public forums and conducted a 500-person survey, Creehan said.Fayette County

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
