On January 11th, Lucinda Beth Ashby was ordained and consecrated as the fourth bishop of the Diocese of El Camino Real, succeeding Bishop Mary Gray-Reeves. Bishop Lucinda is the second female bishop to succeed a female bishop in the history of the Episcopal Church.

Nearly 850 people, including many of our own parishioners, were at the ceremony led by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry. The ceremony was live streamed to four church viewing parties and viewed across the US and internationally.

The service can be viewed at the diocesan YouTube page. More photos and videos can be seen at El Camino Real’s Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages (membership not needed).
