Diocese of Central Pennsylvania to install new Episcopal bishop

From Central PA-

The consecration of the Episcopal Diocese of Central Pennsylvania’s 11th Bishop, the Rev. Dr. Audrey Scanlon, will be held this weekend in  Harrisburg.

Scanlon, the diocese’s first female bishop, previously served the Diocese of Connecticut.

Bishop-elect Scanlon's formal installation ceremony will be held Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will include Episcopalians from across the diocese, featuring more than 20 bishops (including Lutheran and Moravian.)

The seating of Scanlon will take place  at Saint Stephen's Episcopal Cathedral, 221 N. Front St., Harrisburg, at 10:15 a.m. Sunday. In the Episcopal tradition, the new bishop must knock on the red front doors of the Cathedral church and ask to enter. Once entry is granted, the bishop is formally seated. Scanlon will preach the sermon at the service.
