At its April 7, 2014, meeting, the Standing Committee of the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth asked the Rt. Rev. Rayford B. High, Jr. to stay on as provisional bishop through 2015, and he agreed.
“We are all very happy about this,” said Elinor Normand, president of the Standing Committee. “We really appreciate how he is helping us to grow as a diocese and to stay focused on our mission and ministry.”
Bishop High, retired bishop suffragan of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas, was elected at the 2012 Diocesan Convention in Stephenville. He and his wife, Pat, have been married 49 years. They have three children and six grandchildren.
