The Diocese of Ohio is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion represented in the United States by The Episcopal Church.
The Episcopal Church of Ohio ministers in our Church and in our communities in many inspiring ways.
The Standing Committee serves as the Bishop’s Council of Advice, and in the absence of the Bishop, is empowered to assume ecclesiastical authority within the diocese should there be no Bishop Coadjutor or Bishop Suffragan.
All petitions to sell or encumber property must be approved by the Standing Committee. The Standing Committee may, from time to time, exercise a role in disciplinary proceedings related to ordained persons under the provisions of Title IV of the national Canons. The Standing Committee consents to the ordination of deacons and priests in the diocese and also consents to the election of bishops in the several dioceses of The Episcopal Church. Whenever the election of a Bishop is required in this diocese, the Standing Committee establishes the process for the nomination and election of such Bishop. There are 4 clerical and 4 lay members of the Standing Committee. Meetings are held on the third Monday morning of each month except during July and August.
