VATICAN CITY —

The pope has named a new bishop for Camden, New Jersey, after agreeing to let Bishop Joseph Galante retire a few months early because of his ailing health.

The Vatican said Tuesday that the new leader of the Camden diocese is Bishop Dennis Sullivan, currently the vicar general of the New York archdiocese.

Galante, who has been Camden bishop since 2004, began dialysis due to chronic kidney disease in 2011. He reaches the mandatory retirement age of 75 in July.

The 67-year-old Sullivan is a New York City native and is a member of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' committee on child protection, which oversees the U.S. church's sex abuse norms.
