Hundreds have gathered in a southern New Jersey church to witness the installation of Dennis Sullivan as the bishop of Camden’s Roman Catholic Diocese.

Among those attending Tuesday’s ceremony at St. Agnes Church in Gloucester Township were high-ranking church officials from all six of New Jersey’s dioceses, including Newark Archbishop John Joseph Myers. Others on hand included New York’s Cardinal Timothy Dolan and Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput

The 67-year-old Sullivan previously served as vicar general of the New York archdiocese. He succeeds Joseph Galante as leader of the Camden diocese, which serves approximately 475,000 Catholics in Cape May, Atlantic, Cumberland, Salem, Gloucester and Camden counties.

The 74-year-old Galante announced his intent to resign in January 2012, citing ongoing dialysis treatments and several other health issues.
