Church of English ordains 1st diocesan woman bishop

From Catholic Culture-

Rachel Treweek has become the first female diocesan bishop in the Church of England's history.

Earlier in the year, Libby Lane became the first woman ordained as a suffragan bishop-- a position comparable to that of a Catholic auxiliary bishop.

"I hope that women bishops will disturb us," Anglican Bishop Adrian Newman preached at the July 22 ceremony, which took place at Canterbury Cathedral. "I hope they will challenge the conventions of the Church of England, which continues to be led and directed by too many people like me: white, male, middle-aged professionals."
