In 1983, Bishop Aretha Morton became the first woman to pastor a Baptist church in Delaware. For 33 years she served as pastor of the Tabernacle Full Gospel Baptist Cathedral in Wilmington. After retiring in 2016, Bishop Morton is now the Pastor Emeritus (an honorary title bestowed upon one who has retired).

“Be it known to all that Michael S. Purzycki, Mayor of the City of Wilmington, proclaims Bishop Aretha E. Morton a local treasure,” said Mayor Mike Purzycki.

“This is really a humbling experience for me. It really is,” said Morton. “I do what I do. I really don’t look for accolades, but somehow they manage to come to me. I thank God that I’ve been able to really be in the city all that I can be.”

Check out the video at WDEL.com, you can really tell Bishop Morton is a great person and deserves to be honored.
