Episcopal Diocese of CNY To Ordain First Female Bishop

From Central New York-

Reverend DeDe Duncan-Probe remembers going to church with her family when she was young, absorbing as much as she could from each service.

"I would sit in the pews as a small child and take in this thing that was happening around me. Over time, I began to put words into that experience of a relationship with God and relationship with other people," she said.

Duncan-Probe was ordained as a deacon in 2003.

Thirteen years later, she was selected as the first female bishop of Central New York's Episcopal diocese.

Duncan-Probe visited Watertown's Trinity Episcopal Church on Tuesday.

She spent time with parishioners and leaders of smaller congregations.

"It's a good opportunity for our bishop-elect to visit the north country. We need to get to know her better, she needs to get to know us better," said Daphne Sterling of Trinity Episcopal Church.
