Los Angeles Episcopalians First Woman Bishop

The Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles has a woman bishop for the first time in its 114-year history. The Reverend Canon Diane Jardin Bruce, rector of St. Clements-by-the-Sea Church in San Clemente, was elected yesterday to one of two open "suffragan" bishop posts. A suffragan is an assistant bishop.

Raised a Roman Catholic, the 53-year-old Bruce is married and has two adult children. Clergyman and lay leaders will elect the second bishop today, as the L.A. Episcopal diocese wraps ups its two-day annual convention in Riverside.
