Bishop Search Candidate
One Candidate was added to the Slate of Nominees for the 10th Bishop of the Diocese of Wyoming. The Rev. Mary Erickson was nominated through the petition process and joins the Rev. David L. Duprey and the Rev. Canon Paul Gordon-Chandler who were brought forward by the Search Committee.
The Rev. Mary Erickson currently serves as an Associate Priest at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Jackson, WY. She is known among the congregation as a force for social justice and servant leadership who delivers pastoral care, spiritual growth workshops and women’s retreats, is a Stephen Ministry trainer, spiritual director, and a former hospice chaplain. Erickson has been involved in every aspect of running a church: liturgical, pastoral, financial, administrative, missional, organizational.
Erickson received a Master of Divinity from Harvard University, with an emphasis on economic and social ethics, and antiracism and diversity training. She received a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from the University of California at Berkeley.
Prayer for Bishop Search:
God of resurrection and rebirth, pour out your blessing on the Search and Transition Committees, and each person who is in the process of responding to the call to Bishop of this and every other diocese. These peculiar times are in your hands. Help us to welcome new life and leadership into the cold spring wind, the deep brown of turned fields, and in our quiet, empty streets that we may remain a witness to your unchanging, powerful love, in the name of the one who shelters and heals, Jesus Christ our risen Lord. Amen
