Today we celebrated the ordination and consecration of Rt. Rev. Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows, the 11th Bishop of the Diocese of Indianapolis. The event was attended by nearly two thousand people at Clowe’s Memorial Hall at Butler University. Various readings and hymns were presented in English and Spanish. Bishop Jennifer is the 1,100th Bishop to be ordained in the Episcopal Church. Rt. Rev. Catherine Waynick, 10th Bishop of the Diocese of Indianapolis, presented Bishop Jennifer with the Diocesan crosier (pastoral staff.)
