From West Texas-

The Rt. Rev. David M. Reed was invested as the tenth Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas on Saturday, June 3, during a service held at TMI – The Episcopal School of Texas in San Antonio. Clergy and lay members of the diocese filled the 500-seat chapel. Reed was first consecrated bishop in 2006 when he was elected to serve as the diocese’s fifth Bishop Suffragan. Reed is the first Bishop Suffragan of the diocese to be chosen as Diocesan Bishop.

On Saturday, the Rt. Rev. Gary R. Lillibridge, ninth bishop of the diocese, who retires this summer, presided over the Investiture service for Reed and lead him through the renewal of his ordination vows. During the service, Lillibridge symbolically handed over to Reed the diocesan bishop’s crozier, a crozier that has been carried by bishops of the Diocese of West Texas for 98 years.
