The Episcopal Diocese of Southern Ohio elected the Rev. Thomas Edward Breidenthal, dean of religious life and of the chapel at Princeton University, to the diocese's top post yesterday.
Of the 324 delegates who voted, Breidenthal got the nod from 86 clergy and 151 laity on the third ballot. The election was the highlight of the two-day diocesan convention at Shawnee State University in Portsmouth, which began Friday.
The bishop-elect, who was ordained a priest in 1982, has served as professor of Christian ethics and moral theology at General Theological Seminary in New York and as senior chaplain at Harvard School in California, an Episcopal Church Foundation fellow in Oxford. He also has served in two parishes, both in Oregon. the rest
