Bishop Scharf

Meet our new bishop

Following a centuries-old tradition of announcing his presence by banging on the cathedral door, our new bishop was formally invested and seated Saturday, Jan. 7. The Right Rev. Dr. Douglas Scharf has returned to the diocese where he was raised and is well known. He was elected at a special convention April 2 as our bishop coadjuter and was ordained as bishop September 24 in Sarasota. He became the sixth bishop of the Diocese of Southwest Florida on Dec. 10, when Bishop Dabney Smith retired. Although all the official steps were already taken (i.e., the paperwork done), Hurricane Ian and Covid interfered with the ceremonial seating. That took place at the Cathedral Church of St. Peter, in St. Petersburg

The newest—and at age 43 probably the youngest—bishop in the Episcopal Church in America was born in New York and from age 2 raised in Ft. Myers, where his father was an Episcopal priest. He served several parishes in the Diocese of Southwest Florida before moving to Palm Beach County to become rector of Good Shepherd in Tequesta.

"There are few moments when a priest is speechless, but this is one of them. I have been so humbled and honored to have been a part of this journey with you all and to be elected, I am truly overwhelmed. I feel the presence of God’s grace in this moment,” he said when he received the news of his election via a phone call from Bishop Smith. The assembly reacted with a joyful applause.


Almighty God, who created us in your own image: Grant us grace fearlessly to contend against evil and to make no peace with oppression; and, that we may reverently use our freedom, help us to employ it in the maintenance of justice in our communities and among the nations, to the glory of your holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

—Book of Common Prayer

Susan Wilson picture

Dr. Susan Wilson, an English family physician, is full of energy and zealfor the Lord. She founded Tumaini (the word means "hope") Fund to put her faith to work in the AIDS-ravaged Kagera region of Northwest Tanzania. There she established an orphanage for thousands of children who lost their moms and dads to AIDS. In addition to monitary contributions, the ladies of our church, the ECW (Episcopal Church Women) have sewn numerous dresses, as seen here with Dr. Wilson.

Parishioners Mike Moore and Roger Conant are directors for the fund in the United States.
