Kay Goldsworthy becomes first female Anglican archbishop in the world

From Australia-

The first time Kay Goldsworthy knelt before the altar of an Anglican church to become a deacon, the solemn ceremony was interrupted by a bomb scare.

Someone who wouldn’t accept a woman in clerical collar thought a death threat might stave off the ordination of women.

Three decades later, Kay Goldsworthy reached the top of the church.

In St George’s cathedral in Perth this week she will become Australia’s first woman archbishop.

But it isn’t all celebration. She’s taking over the Perth diocese because her predecessor, Roger Herft, resigned after admitting he mismanaged sexual abuse cases when he was bishop of Newcastle.
