Cynthia Patterson, wife of Quebec's Anglican bishop, becomes priest

From The CBC-

When Cynthia Patterson was ordained as an Anglican priest in late November, it marked the first time, to her knowledge, that a priest has ever been married to a bishop in Quebec.

Her husband, Dennis Drainville, is the outgoing bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Quebec.

But Patterson's relationship to Anglicanism goes further back than her recent ordination or her marriage.

"We could use that silly expression, you know, 'cradle Anglican,'"  Patterson told CBC Quebec AM.

"But it was much more than going to church every week as a child and as a young person – it was much deeper."
