Priest Elected First Latina Dean Of Episcopal Christ Church Cathedral In Hartford

From Hartford CT-

As an 8-year-old girl in the Dominican Republic, Miguelina Howell said she was known for "playing Eucharist" as an acolyte in her church.

Thirty years later, Howell was elected the 10th dean of Christ Church Cathedral — the first Hispanic woman to be elected a cathedral dean in the Episcopal Church in the U.S.

"It's a reflection of the diverse, evolving nature of the very fabric of our society," Howell said this week. "In secular and religious settings, there is a growing number of women elected or appointed in positions of leadership. It seems to me that this has been a growing trend in the past two decades and there is still relevant work to be done to assure that all God's children have a place at the table."
