After a series of ballots at an electing synod, the Diocese of Toronto in the Ecclesiastical Province of Ontario of the Anglican Church of Canada has today elected three new bishops suffragan to serve in the diocese.
Day: September 17, 2016
Earlier this year the bishop called a special diocesan synod with a two-fold purpose, to pass a canon law which would allow the diocese to elect a bishop coadjutor and to then have the election. However, an anonymous member of one of the parishes in the diocese objected, stating that the election would violate diocesan canon law. Subsequently, the bishop has canceled the announced electing synod.
