Daniel Corrigan, an Episcopal bishop and director of the Home Department of the Executive Council, worked actively in the areas of civil rights, the anti-Vietnam War movement, ecumenism, and as an advocate for the ordination of women. His devotion to these issues involved him in two historical events in the history of the Episcopal Church: the Mass for Peace at the Pentagon and the ordination of the first women to be ordained into the Episcopal Church (the Philadelphia 11).
