NEW YORK (AP) ― A South Korea-born diocesan has been installed as the suffragan bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New York.

The Rt. Rv. Allen K. Shin was consecrated during a ceremony Saturday at the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine in Manhattan.

The suffragan is elected by clergy and laity to be an assistant to the diocesan bishop. Shin was elected last December.

Church officials say he and his family moved to Washington, D.C. in 1972. He graduated from the General Theological Seminary in New York City in 1996.

They say the consecration ceremony included a “laying on of hands,” where bishops surround a kneeling Shin and put their hands on his head, saying a prayer together.
