Lindstrom said the installation also was special because his former bishop and friend, the Rt. Rev. C. Andrew Doyle, bishop of the Diocese of Texas, delivered the homily. Lindstrom said Doyle officiated at his wedding.

“It was just a fantastic day,” Lindstrom said. “I don't think my feet have hit the ground yet.”

Meanwhile, Konieczny said Lindstrom is a good fit for St. Paul's, the Episcopal diocese and the Oklahoma City metro area at large.

“I was very impressed with Justin's passion for the mission of the church,” Konieczny said.

The bishop said St. Paul's is the home church of the Episcopal bishop in Oklahoma.

Consequently, he said, Lindstrom, as the cathedral's dean, acts as a representative of the bishop and the diocese as well as St. Paul's.

Lindstrom said he is excited to serve in his new role and particularly pleased with the atmosphere of renewal and revitalization in Oklahoma City.

“This is an awesome place, and the cathedral community wants and needs to be a part of that,” he said.
