New Priest Takes Command of N.J. Episcopal Diocese

From NBC New Jersey-

A priest from Florida has been installed as the 12th bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey.

Hundreds of people came out for a consecration ceremony that was staged Saturday at Trinity Cathedral in Trenton for the Rev. William Stokes.

He was then formally welcomed to the cathedral and seated in his new church during a service on Sunday morning.

Stokes succeeds Bishop George Councell, who stepped down earlier this year after nearly 10 years of service.

The 56-year-old Stokes formerly served as rector of St. Paul's Church in Delray Beach.
