Bp Dietsche Installed as 16th Bishop of NY

February 2, 2013

At a service this morning at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the Rt. Rev. Andrew Marion Lenow Dietsche was “recognized, invested and installed” as the 16th Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New York.

During the service, a congregation that filled the Cathedral to capacity, including 20 bishops and hundreds of clergy, witnessed the passing to Bishop Dietsche of the symbols of office—the stole, cope, miter and crozier of the Bishop of New York— by retiring Bishop Mark S. Sisk, and his seating in the Cathedra, or Bishop’s throne, by Dean Kowalski.

Following the Peace, a letter from the Bishop of London was read out by his commissary, the Rev. Dr. Alan McCormack, and Congressman Charles B. Rangel also addressed the congregation.
