Priest [ess] may be first female bishop
The Pope is coming to Scottland just in time to scoop up some Traditionalists from Church of Scottland. COS is about to get more irrelevant then it already is.
The Holy Father defends this long disused practice, here.
Dr Peden is among three candidates being considered for the bishop's post
A Scottish Anglican priest will learn later if she is to become Britain's first female bishop.
The Reverend Canon Dr Alison Peden, 57, is on a shortlist of three for the role of Bishop of Glasgow & Galloway in the Scottish Episcopal Church.
The two other candidates are the Very Reverend Dr Gregor Duncan, 59, and the Venerable Dr John Applegate, 53.
An electoral synod, made up of clergy and lay church members from the Diocese, will decide on Saturday.
The decision will be taken after all three candidates have met members of the electoral synod.
