She wanted to be a priest in a Texas town where women couldn't; now she's a bishop

From Syracuse-

When DeDe Duncan-Probe finished college, she knew she wanted to bring God to people. She also knew that there were no female priests -- at least not in Texas in 1985.

She followed her dream, anyway.

On Dec. 3, Duncan-Probe will become the first female Episcopal Bishop of the Central New York Diocese, which has 81 congregations and 13,000 members. She had been the rector of the St. Peter in Woods Episcopal Church in the Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C.
