The Church in Wales is about to get its first female bishop: the Rev. Canon Joanna Penberthy was tapped for the Diocese of St. David’s by an electoral college of 47 members, who locked themselves in a room at the cathedral for two days before announcing the choice. She was previously the first female canon of St. David’s Cathedral, then became rector of a parish near Llandrindod Wells, Powys. (The Church in Wales)
