New Anglican Bishop takes place in history

From Australia-

A South Sudanese choir burst into impromptu song as newly installed Anglican Bishop of Canberra/Goulburn Dr Mark Short emerged from Saint Saviour's Cathedral on Saturday.
The choir, representing the South Sudanese Anglican Ministry, had travelled especially from Ginninderra, ACT for the historic occasion. Members of Wagga Wagga's Sudanese community also made a special trip, honouring their former Archdeacon.
In what was thought to be a first, an Aboriginal leader, Bush Church Aid Society indigenous ministry officer The Reverend Neville Naden preached at an Anglican Bishop's consecration.
The service, preceded by the sounding of Saint Saviour's bells across Goulburn, united all colours, creeds and abilities.
