Bishop Mom

Dad is cooking, the beer is poured, Mom is catching her breath between phone calls and Ruth and Tanya Moxley wrote from Halifax about their experience of having their Mom elected diocesan bishop of the Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

How does it feel to be the only two people in Canada who have a “Bishop Mom?” Pretty proud, we must say. It’s an awesome thing, to be elected to a leadership position by your peers.

We are Ruth & Tanya Moxley, the only two people in Canada whose mom is a bishop in office. Our mom is Sue Moxley, as of today diocesan Bishop-elect of Nova Scotia & Prince Edward Island. She was elected this morning in one ballot. She has been serving our diocese as Suffragan Bishop since March, 2004.We were thrilled and proud then, and now we are again!

Despite lots of people telling us not to worry, that it would all be fine, we were pretty tense this morning, us sisters and our dad. I don’t think dad has been sleeping much for the past few days. There’s no sure thing when the Holy Spirit is “in the house.”. There were a lot of people in the Cathedral today.
