The Rev. Canon Audrey Cady Scanlan was elected as the 11th Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Central Pennsylvania on 14th March, pending the required consents from a majority of bishops with jurisdiction and standing committees of the Episcopal Church, it has been reported. Pending a successful consent process, Rev Scanlan will succeed Bishop Nathan Baxter, who retired last May after serving the Central Pennsylvania diocese for eight years.

Rev Scanlan, 56, who is the canon for mission collaboration and congregational life in the Diocese of Connecticut, was elected on the second ballot out of a field of three nominees.
