The Electoral Synod begins. There are 5 candidates. All bishops have returned to the hotel. Elections are completed when one candidate receives a majority of votes in both the House of Clergy and House of Laity. Once a new Primate has been elected she/he and all bishops will return to the Cathedral to join the community. Photograph courtesy of Sarah Donnelly.
