While in Washington for the Installation of the new Presiding Bishop, the Most Reverend Michael Curry, Bishop Eaton met with several leaders in Congress, including those who represent Florida.

"It was very good to meet some of our Florida political leaders," the Bishop said, "and I am delighted that there are a couple of Episcopalians among them. It is important for us to know each other so that we can find ways to work together for the well-being of our communities in the diocese, and I am looking forward to meeting our leaders from other parts of our region. I am very keen that our political leaders know of our experiences and concerns, and I was pleased to be able to tell them of the good work that so many of our congregations, schools, and other ministries are doing."
Several of the Florida elected officials expressed their hope to be able to attend Bishop Eaton's Seating in January.
