Episcopal Church bishop who became Catholic returns to Episcopal Church
May 03, 2010
A retired Episcopal Church bishop who became a Catholic layman in 2007 has returned to the Episcopal Church. The Right Rev. Daniel Herzog, the former Episcopal Bishop of Albany, was a Catholic layman until the late 1960s, when he was originally received into the Episcopal Church.
“For the past three years, Bishop Dan and I have maintained our friendship and have talked on several occasions about his decision to return to the Catholic Church,” said Episcopal Church Bishop Bill Love of Albany. “After much thought and prayer he has discovered that his heart is still very much with the people and Diocese of Albany whom he truly loves and committed his entire 36 years of ordained ministry serving. Earlier this Spring, Bishop Dan asked if I would be open to him returning to an active ordained ministry as a priest in the Diocese of Albany. I asked him; if possible, would he consider coming back not only as a priest, but as a bishop in order to assist me in ministering to the Diocese.”
