Katharine Jefferts Schori (born March 26, 1954) is the former Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church of the United States. Previously elected as the 9th Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Nevada, she is the first woman elected as a primate of the Anglican Communion. Jefferts Schori was elected at the 75th General Convention on June 18, 2006, and invested at Washington National Cathedral on November 4, 2006. She took part in her first General Convention of the Episcopal Church as Presiding Bishop in July 2009.
She is one of the church leaders around the world that agree to disbar Stan Smith from all religion after he beats up Roger in "Season's Beatings" when he discovers Roger got the role of Jesus Christ in the church play at the Langley Falls Shopping Mall that Stan wanted. When footage of the beating makes the news, church leaders around the world are stunned.
