Bishop Richard Condie was consecrated on Saturday and is now the highest clergy member in Tasmania.
The Anglican Church reached out to abuse survivor and long-time campaigner Steven Fisher to invite him to meet with the Bishop.
It was an invitation Mr Fisher was pleased to receive.
“I believe it’s a huge step for them to reach out and ask a victim to come down and actually talk to them,” he said.
“It’s something we’ve been campaigning for for 15 years.”
