Episcopal Diocese to choose woman bishop

From Kansas-

The Episcopal Diocese of Kansas will make history this fall as it chooses one of three clergywomen candidates who will become its 10th bishop. A woman has never been bishop of the diocese that dates back to 1859. 

This also will be the first time an all-woman slate has been presented in any Episcopal Diocese in the United States. The Very Rev. Foster Mays, president of the Council of Trustees of the diocese, said the fact that they are all women, while historic, speaks to the ministry and experience of ordained women across the Episcopal Church. 

The three candidates were guests of clergy members of the diocese at a luncheon Tuesday, Oct. 2, at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 1300 N. 18th St., Kansas City, Kansas.
