The Rt. Rev. Daniel Gutiérrez serves as the 16th Bishop of Pennsylvania. A native of New Mexico, Bishop Gutiérrez comes from a family that settled in New Mexico in the 1500s. Previously, he served as canon to the ordinary and chief of staff in the Diocese of the Rio Grande. Prior to ordination, he worked for two decades in public service, including a stint as chief of staff to the mayor of Albuquerque and director of economic development, and as president of a strategy, marketing, media, and political consulting company called Mensajes. 

Bishop Gutiérrez is a graduate of the University of New Mexico, where he earned a BA in history and political science and a MA in public administration. He earned a diocesan certificate in Anglican studies through the Trinity School for Ministry, and a MTS from St. Norbert College. His theological interests center on the Eucharist, monasticism, and the spiritual reality of Jesus Christ, who instructed Peter to “feed my sheep.”

Bishop Gutiérrez is married to Suzanne Fletcher Gutiérrez, and they have one son, Jude. The family shares their household with dogs, turtles, pheasants, owls, and the other miscellaneous pets that wander through their lives.
