Daniel G. P. Gutiérrez serves as the 16th bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania. The mystery of the Eucharist, scripture, and Jesus Christ are spiritual foundations for Gutiérrez.

He is blessed and grateful to be a bishop, a shepherd and a fellow sojourner. He is married to best friend Suzanne and rejoice in their son Jude, who attends the University of New Mexico.
