God willing and the people consenting, the Rev. Carlye J. Hughes will be ordained and consecrated a Bishop in the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church and Eleventh Bishop of The Episcopal Diocese of Newark on Saturday, September 22, 2018 at 11 AM at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC). Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry will be the Chief Consecrator.
The Standing Committee requests the honor of your presence. Light refreshments will follow the service.
All are invited to attend, and while there is no admission charge, NJPAC requires that each attendee seated in the auditorium must have a ticket.
Note for consecration, clergy and other and procession participants
A separate registration link has been sent to you. Please use the link sent to you (NOT the link below) so that we can send you the appropriate ticket.
Note for choir
Separate arrangements are being made for participants in the combined choir.
Note for all other attendees
Please register for your open-seating tickets TODAY! The online registration form will be open through Friday, August 31.
To accommodate NJPAC’s seating preparations, wheelchair patrons with one companion seat have separate registration fields on the same online form.
While individuals may order tickets using the link above, to facilitate the ticketing process, we are asking congregations and diocesan organizations to register attendees as a group using the same link. To avoid issuing duplicate tickets, the registration form requires each individual’s name.
Tickets can be picked up at the Farewell Luncheon for Bishop Beckwith on September 8; remaining tickets will be mailed the week of September 10. You may pick up (and sign for) someone else’s tickets.
Event day information
While there are several parking lots convenient to NJPAC, on the day of the event, we encourage you to car pool. Parking at Episcopal House is reserved for bishops and the Presiding Bishop’s office. Doors open at 9:45 AM; all guests not assigned to processions or to seats on the stage are requested to be in their seats by 10:30 AM for the music and procession.
