SAN ANGELO, Texas (AP) A priest who transformed the ministry at St. Mary's Catholic Center in College Station was ordained Monday as the new Bishop of the San Angelo Catholic Diocese.

Sis said his new job is "awesome, kind of scary, and exciting."

The San Angelo Standard-Times reports the Rev. Michael Sis was ordained as the sixth bishop of San Angelo during a three-hour ceremony Monday in the West Texas city.

During the ceremony, Sis conveyed a message of gratitude, prayer and hope to the congregation.

Sis replaces Bishop Michael Pfeifer, who retired in December.

Sis served at St. Mary's Catholic Center for 13 1/2 years.

He attended St. Joseph Catholic School and graduated from Bryan High School in 1978.

The San Angelo diocese covers more than 29 West Texas counties. More than 77,000 of its 860,000 residents are Catholic.
