New Episcopal seminary president

Katherine Hancock Ragsdale was named president and dean of Episcopal Divinity School, Cambridge, Mass., effective July 1.

Ragsdale, an openly gay priest, serves a congregation in Pepperell, Mass., and is president of the progressive think-tank Political Research Associates.

While her ordination is a point of contention for many Episcopalians, she told The Boston Globe in March that she’d experienced “far more resistance and discrimination in the progressive community for being a Christian.”
