Rev. Bonnie Perry took one step closer to breaking a barrier in the Episcopal Church.
The pastor told the parishioners of All Saints Episcopal Church in Ravenswood via a statement since she was on a trip out of the country, according to Chicago Breaking News.
"I pray that we will bear witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ that changes people's lives and proclaims the profound inclusivity and hospitality of God," the statement said.
This is the second nomination for Perry. She was a finalist for Bishop of California in 2005.
