In our weekly Canada Connections series, we are virtually travelling across Canada to drop in on different dioceses as they come up in the Anglican Church of Canada's cycle of prayer

In the week of 10 July 2022 we pray for The Rt. Rev. William Cliff, Bishop, and the clergy and people of the Diocese of Brandon.

"The Diocese of Brandon was founded in 1913 and covers an area of 100,000 square miles of the western half of Manitoba.  The Diocese of Brandon’s Synod was organized in June 1924.  The Synod office and Cathedral are in Brandon, Manitoba." [source: General Synod Archives,]

About the Bishop

A list of parishes is here, with linked entries for parishes with their own websites.

The diocesan cathedral of St Matthew, built in 1882, is in Brandon. It was made Pro-Cathedral in 1945 and Cathedral in 1952. History of the Cathedral.

The diocesan newsletter is the Mustard Seed.

Do you have connections with this diocese? We'd love to hear about them!
