The Consecration of Bishop Anne Germond (Photos)

This past February, Bishop Anne Germond was installed as both the 11th Bishop and 1st female Bishop for the Diocese of Algoma by the Most Reverend Colin Johnson, Metropolitan of the Ecclesiastical Province of Ontario and Archbishop of Toronto and Moosonee. St. Luke's Cathedral was filled by visiting parishioners, Bishops from across the Canadian Church, our friends in the ecumenical and interfaith community, and civic leaders from Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie. The consecration was live streamed and recorded by Echotech, and can be found on their YouTube channel as Consecration of Bishop, Diocese of Algoma. We look forward to working closely with Bishop Germond to spread the word of God and g

It is written in English, but it is close to four-hundred-years-old English. I have been assured once you have a grasp for reading it; it becomes easier to follow along. This seemingly ordinary book of services has an eventful history, a large part of which is based on the fact it is in English in the first place. In 1534, King Henry VIII mad

Dean’s Message Easter 2017

I knew a bishop with a most annoying habit; every time he met someone, regardless of who it was, or how often they met, that bishop would find the opportunity to say to them, “The Lord loves you!”, and then would call them by name. “The Lord loves you, Bill!” “The Lord loves you, Sharon!” “The Lord loves you, Michael!” And so on it went. It was a beautiful message, but it never let up. It was unceasing, unchanging, relentless. In the first instance, most people received the message with gratitude, and sometimes with awe.
