Beginning in the new year, National Indigenous Anglican Bishop Mark MacDonald will also be the new area bishop for the Northern Manitoba region of the diocese of Keewatin.
David Ashdown, Archbishop of the Diocese of Keewatin and Metropolitan of the ecclesiastical Province of Rupert’s Land, made the announcement on Dec. 17 and requested prayers for Bishop Mark, the clergy and people of the northern Manitoba region “as together we begin this new adventure in witness and ministry.”
“Bishop Mark shall have full episcopal authority in Northern Manitoba Region in all matters except for those matters which I am required by canon to retain, namely those relating to the discipline of clergy,” the archbishop wrote, noting that he would deal with any such matters in full consultation with Bishop Mark.
