According to Title III, Canon 12 of The Constitution and Canons of the Episcopal Church,
Each Bishop Diocesan shall visit the Congregations within the Diocese at least once in three years.
The Canon spells out that the visit is to include a celebration of Communion, Baptisms and/or Confirmations, and a Sermon.
Our last Canonical Episcopal Visitation was October 30, 2005. We are not included on the visitation calendar this year.
"Shunning" of out-of-favor clergy and congregations has a history in this diocese. Title III, Canon 12 spells out a process by which the bishop or the neglected priest and vestry can appeal to the Presiding Bishop, who then appoints a council of five (5???) neighboring diocesan bishops to work some kind of reconciliation voodoo ("reconciliation" in The Episcopal Church means submission to some penalty or other in many cases - or a lawsuit).
So, the choices seem to be no Confirmations at Good Shepherd, or appeal to a Presiding Bishop who uses lawsuits as her primary form of "reconciliation."
