The Most Rev. Royal U. Grote

August 16, 1946 - November 24, 2016

Our most gracious Lord called our Presiding Bishop, The Most Rev. Royal Grote, Jr., to his eternal home in the early morning hours of Thanksgiving Day. He peacefully departed this life in his sleep.

The Rt. Rev. Ray R. Sutton, Vice-President of the Reformed Episcopal Church and Bishop Coadjutor of the Diocese of Mid-America, will assume responsibilities as President of the Reformed Episcopal Church and Bishop Ordinary of the Diocese of Mid-America.

Please be in prayer for Bishop Grote's wife, Ellen, and the Grote family.
