Oklahoma Episcopal leader takes Western North Carolina bishop's post

From Oklahoma (with video)-

A clergy leader in the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma recently was selected to serve as bishop for an out-of-state diocese.

The Rev. Jose McLoughlin was elected Saturday at an electing convention in Asheville, N.C., to serve as bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Western North Carolina.

He currently serves as canon to the ordinary and chief of staff for the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma, a position he has held since 2008.

McLoughlin, 47, was chosen from among four final candidates to lead Episcopalians in the Western North Carolina diocese, representing 15,000 members in 63 year-round congregations, six summer chapels and two conference centers.
