To a standing ovation, and in front of an audience of more than 800, Foley Beach was consecrated on Saturday as the first bishop of the newly formed Anglican Diocese of the South. Beach is the rector of Holy Cross Anglican Church in Loganville. 

“It’s a great day for this region and a great day for the Anglican Church in North America,” said Archbishop Robert Duncan, of the Anglican Church in North America, as he brought greetings from the Global Anglican Future Conference Archbishops, a group that represents more than 40 million Anglicans. “Whenever we make a bishop, it is just a great ceremony in which we see what we inherit.”
