DENVER (AP) — Denver has a new archbishop to replace Archbishop Charles Chaput.

The Most Rev. Samuel Aquila was installed Wednesday afternoon at the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Denver. Chaput, now the archbishop of Philadelphia, was among those attending.

Another previous Denver archbishop, Cardinal J. Francis Stafford, also attended the invitation-only event.

The Denver Roman Catholic archdiocese streamed Aquila’s installation live on the Internet.

Aquila is the fifth person to lead the archdiocese.
