Have a question for the nominees?

The Transition Committee invites people from across the diocese to contribute questions for the nominees to respond to at the Meet-and-Greets. The committee will review submissions and choose several that best represent the themes that emerge. Questions in the same categories will be asked at each meet-and-greet session. The committee invites questions by April 8.
