New Episcopal bishop will serve WNY and NW Pennsylvania

From NPR Buffalo-

Western New York's new Episcopal bishop was installed Sunday. Bishop Sean Rowe was welcomed to St. Paul's Cathedral. Rowe will continue as bishop of Northwestern Pennsylvania, sharing staff and doing some travel back and forth.

Rowe said e-mail will be very valuable because of the combined area of the two dioceses. Bishop William Franklin will be retiring soon and moving to New York City. That's why the new cleric is the "provisional" bishop.

At a reception, the new 44-year-old bishop could look around himself and see many Episcopals who are much older. The new bishop said he is going to head out into the marketplace of ideas and try to reverse the long-term decline in his church membership in this area.
