The Right Reverend Todd Townshend, Bishop of Huron, and the Most Reverend Anne Germond, Archbishop of Algoma and Bishop of Moosonee are delighted to announce a partnership in the Gospel between the Dioceses of Huron and Moosonee. The Venerable Rosalyn Elm, Huron’s Archdeacon of Reconciliation and Indigenous Ministries, will play a key role in an Evangelistic Mission in the Diocese of Moosonee as its Missioner.

Archdeacon Ros will devote approximately 300 hours on a part-time basis between March 1st and September 30th to the Mission, “Who Do You Say I Am?”, as part of her responsibilities as Archdeacon. She will continue in her role as priest-in-charge of the Parish of the Six Nations.


After many years of faithful service to the Diocese of Huron,  Sarah Chase has indicated her desire to retire from Huron Church House as of August 1, 2024.

Sarah joined the Diocesan staff on December 1, 1997 and is currently the longest-serving employee at Church House. She started in Accounts Receivable before moving to the Bishop’s Office, then Parish Services and eventually into her current role as Synod Coordinator.  She has provided staff support for innumerable committees including Diocesan Council and has also been the informal social convenor for the Church House staff functions.

We will miss Sarah’s caring demeanor, her knowledge of and deep love for the Diocese, and her smile. Sarah will be recognised with other retirees at the next Diocesan Synod—the first one in a long time that she will not have fully planned.

We wish Sarah many years of happy and healthy retirement!


The Venerable Tanya Phibbs will be Commissary for Bishop Townshend until his return from sabbatical leave on March 18.
