The Family Expands


It’s official! Rupert’s Land welcomed 12 new parishes located east of Winnipeg on August 1. The largest of these is St. Alban’s Cathedral in Kenora, Ontario, the centre of the former Diocese of Keewatin. The northern part of Keewatin was namedMishamikoweesh,” the first indigenous diocese in the country, in June. The only northern parishes not part of the new diocese have joined the diocese of Brandon: Thompson and Churchill. The remaining 12 parishes of southern Keewatin have subsequently joined Rupert’s Land as a fourth archdeaconry.

     At synod in October, we will welcome Church of the Good Shepherd, Atikokan; St. Luke’s, Dryden; Holy Trinity, Minnitaki; St. John’s, Fort Frances; Emmanuel Church, Ignace; St. Alban’s Cathedral, Kenora; Pinawa Christian Fellowship; St. John’s, Lac du Bonnet; St. John’s, Rainy River; Shared Ministry in Red Lake; St. Mary’s, Sioux Lookout; and St. John’s, Wabigoon.
