Do we have an official list of who the co-consecrators were?  Especially the Principal Consecrator?

This says alot about Bishop Lawrence.  What a blessing to the Diocese of South Carolina and to the church as a whole.

What bishop in recent history has had to go through what he did to get consecrated? The only one who comes close, ironically enough, is the Bishop of New Hampshire.

#1—this has been on the internet. Daniels from E Carolina was the chief consecrator as he is the Province head at this time. +Scott-Joynt, +Salmon, +Allison. And a Bishop from the Dominican Republic, I believe. There were probably another twenty or so present, including (that I saw) +Burton from Canada, +Kwashi from Nigeria, +Albany, +W Missouri, +ND, +Pittsburgh, +Bill Frey, +John Rodgers, +Quincy, +Fort Worth, +AL, +U-SC.

The Chief Consecrator- The Rt. Rev. Clifton Daniel, II- Bishop of East Carolina.  Co-consecrators were Bishops Salmon(SC-Ret), Allison(SC-Ret.), Scott-Joynt (Winchester), Ackerman (quicy); and Holquin (Dominican Republic - SC’s companion diocese).  Total bishop count was 28, I beleive, which was considered a good turnout as expressed by the bishops themselves.

Was Bishop James Adams (who is quoted) one of the consecrators?  Silly question I realize but he does not seemed to be included in the list so far.
