[Episcopal News Service, New Orleans] Eight bishops have accepted Presiding
Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori's invitation to serve as "episcopal
visitors" to dioceses that have requested this provision.
At her request, the Presiding Bishop's canon, the Rev. Dr. Charles
Robertson, advised Episcopal News Service of this measure the evening of
September 19. The announcement preceded the opening plenary session of the
House of Bishops' September 20-25 meeting in New Orleans. Robertson said
Jefferts Schori expected to announce the names of the eight bishops during
that session, which is devoted to the bishops' private conversation with
Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, and is closed to the public and
