Another Saint Joins the Ranks

Perhaps you never knew of her existence, or her name, or her work.  This article may be the first you have ever read about her.

There are many priests in our church and a growing percentage of these are women.

But ... a woman priest in Cuba???

Back in 1987 three women were ordained Episcopal priests in Havana.  One of the three was Nerva Cot Aguilera, former school teacher.  In 2007 Madre Nerva was consecrated suffragan bishop of western Cuba.

Obispo Aguilera died on Saturday July 10th and was buried yesterday, July 11.

Read more about Nerva Cot Aguilera and her life in the following article from EpiscopalLife Online: http://www.episcopalchurch.org/79425_123406_ENG_HTM.htm

¬°Ella puede descansar en paz y se elevan en gloria! (May she rest in peace and rise in glory!)
