The Episcopal Diocese of New York installed a new bishop Saturday during a service at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine.

The Rev. Andrew Dietsche became the 16th bishop of the diocese, replacing Bishop Mark Sisk who retired in 2011.  Dietsche worked as a freelance graphic designer and cartoonist before joining the clergy.

He worked in Massachusetts as the rector for 11 years before he was made a church official.
