In the week of 30 October 2022, we pray for Bishop Lesley Wheeler-Dame and the clergy and people of the Diocese of Yukon.

The 150-year history of the diocese is outlined here

The diocese of Yukon covers the civil Yukon Territory, with parishes from Old Crow to Watson Lake, and also takes in communities near its borders in northern BC. The diocese is situated in the traditional territories of the 14 Yukon First Nations and the First Nations of Northern British Columbia.
