About the Bishop

"The Diocese of Moosonee of the Anglican Church of Canada, covers some 560,000 square kilometres straddling northeastern Ontario and northwestern Quebec and is set in 'an almost unbelievable land…of forests and lake and rivers with mountains and muskeg and desolate tundra' (Olive MacKay Petersen)."
