1. The Consecration and Seating of the Reverend Canon Dr. Todd Townshend as the Fourteenth Bishop of Huron will take place on Saturday, January 25 at the Cathedral Church of St Paul. The time is still to be determined. Clergy are invited to vest, the colour being white.
It is customary for a diocese to take up a collection to assist a new bishop in obtaining the new vestments and other accoutrements needed by a bishop. If you would like to contribute, please send a cheque made out to the Diocese of Huron with ‘Bishop-elect Townshend’ on the memo line.
The cheque should be mailed to:
