FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Ordination and Consecration of the XI Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Delaware, the Rev. Kevin S. Brown
[WILMINGTON, DE] – It is with great pleasure that the Episcopal Diocese of Delaware announces the Ordination and Consecration of the Rev. Kevin S. Brown as the XI Bishop Diocesan.
The service will take place at 11:00 a.m. in the Education and Humanities Theater on the campus of Delaware State University in Dover. The Most Rev. Michael Curry will serve as the Chief Consecrator.
Brown was elected on Saturday, July 15, 2017 amidst abundant joy and a boundless spirit. The announcement of a new bishop came after the tally of the fifth ballot.
Brown will bring many gifts to Delaware and looks forward to serving Christ with the diocese, and listening to the various stories and ministries that are waiting to be told. Brown, and his wife Caroline, will move to the First State from Charlotte, North Carolina later in the fall.
A crowd of approximately 1,000 is expected to attend the ordination and consecration service in December. In order not to exceed the seating capacity of the venue, a ticket is necessary to attend. Livestream of the service will be offered on the ordination webpage. Many parishes around the diocese will gather to watch the service via livestream.
