9 May 2015 – The Most Reverend Roger Herft, Archbishop of Perth, has announced the appointment of The Reverend Canon Kate Wilmot as new Assistant Bishop for Perth Diocese.
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
I have been praying for God to lead us to a person who would join the team as a Godly leader in the Episcopate. The key virtues I looked for were one who is close to the heart of Jesus, attentive to the Spirit and humble in mind – someone who could add gifts to the Episcopal Team.
After prayerful deliberation and obtaining advice from others it is with great joy that I brought to the Diocesan Council at its meeting last night, as per The Assistant Bishops Statute 2007 section 3, the name of The Reverend Canon Kate Wilmot to be a Bishop in the Church of God in the Diocese of Perth.
The Diocesan Council unanimously concurred with Kate’s nomination.
Please pray for Kate as she responds to the pressures of receiving this decision in a holy and peaceful manner.
Kate will be consecrated in St George’s Cathedral at 6.30pm on Thursday 6 August 2015. Please mark this in your diaries.
With blessings and prayers.
