First woman elected bishop of Episcopal Diocese of Spokane

From Spokane-

The Rev. Gretchen Rehberg has been elected bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Spokane.

It is the first time a woman has been chosen to lead the 40 Episcopal churches in Eastern Washington and North Idaho.

“I am incredibly humbled and honored to be elected bishop of our diocese,” she said in a prepared statement. Only one person is elected bishop, but the work is all of ours.”
