Bronx bishop honored for 8 years of service

WAKEFIELD - A musically inclined bishop is being honored by his congregation for eight years of service in Wakefield.

Bishop Stephen Hutchinson says music is his way of spreading the word of God. He preaches and sings at the Ecclesia Ministries Church where parishioners like to express their faith through their West Indian culture.

Hutchinson was also one of the first people to receive the ministry of singing award. He says he appreciates the recognition, but that it wouldn't be possible without the church's volunteers.
