Jennifer Baskerville- Burroughs has been elected by Episcopal Diocese as the 11th Bishop of Indianapolis. Baskerville-Burrows, 50, is the first African-American woman elected to be a diocesan bishop in the Episcopal Church. She was elected with 67 votes in the clergy order and 82 in the lay order. Her election culminated a nearly two-year discernment and search process by the diocese at the 179th diocesan convention. The Rt. Rev. Catherine M. Waynick plans to retire in the spring of 2017.
