Fr. John was our rector in Covington, LA and a dear friend. His elections give me great hope.
From The Bishop of Louisiana:
Congratulations to Fr. John Bauerschmidt, Rector of Christ Church, Covington, Louisiana upon his election today as the 11th Bishop of Tennessee. Fr. John has informed the Covention that he will accept this election.
What a gain this is for the Diocese of Tennessee! We shall miss Fr. John and Caroline terribly in Louisiana. His time as President of the Standing Committee in Louisiana was one I shall remember with thanksgiving for Fr. John’s wise leadership.
Congratulations to Tennessee. You have chosen well. Your brothers and sisters in the Bayou State pray for God’s blessing on this election.
