A new bishop has officially been installed for the Lincoln Diocese in Nebraska.

More than 250 Roman Catholic bishops, abbots and priests from Nebraska, neighboring states and beyond attended the installation of Bishop James Conley at Lincoln's Cathedral of the Risen Christ.

Conley, 57, took over Tuesday as the leader of the Lincoln Diocese following retiring Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz. Bruskewitz was the diocese bishop for 20 years.

Conley, who was auxiliary bishop of Denver, has said he will keep the Lincoln Diocese's conservative philosophies and practices.

Conley told those gathered to see his installation that he's experienced his first Nebraska football victory and eaten his first Runza sandwich and "also already eaten more kolaches than I care to admit."

And then he said, "I am now a Nebraskan."
