Three years later, Anglicans get new bishop

From Australia-

The Right Reverend John Ford will become the new head of the diocese and replace former bishop Ross Davies, who resigned amid a storm of controversy in September 2010.

Bishop Ford is currently serving as the Bishop of Plymouth in the Diocese of Exeter, in England.

He was elected unanimously by the Bishop's Election Committee.

The Venerable Richard Seabrook has been administrator of the Murray Diocese since Bishop Davies' resignation and said he was pleased to finally have a replacement.

"I am delighted the election of a new bishop has taken place and look forward, after such a long time without a bishop, to welcoming Bishop Ford to the Diocese of the Murray to lead the priests and the people here and build of the work of God's church," Father Seabrook said.
