Father Charles Davidson, a Guyanese priest serving in the United States of America, has been elected to serve as the eight Diocesan Bishop of Guyana.
According to a statement issued by the Anglican Diocese of Guyana, including Suriname and Cayenne, Fr Davidson was elected after one round of voting when the Elective Assembly of the Diocese met on Tuesday.
The Archbishop of the West Indies, The Most Reverend John Holder, has been advised of the decision taken by the Elective Assembly, which is now awaiting Davidson’s confirmation.
The election of the new Bishop follows the death of Bishop Cornell Moss in May this year.
Fr Davidson, according to the statement, is a graduate of the United Theological College of Jamaica and the Codrington College Barbados. He was ordained as a priest in the Diocese of Guyana in June 1977. He served in the Diocese of Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago and the Bahamas before moving to the United States of America.
