Episcopal Ministry

To help members of Synod discern God’s call for the Church, the Committee has developed a document entitled “Episcopal Ministry.” This document outlines the responsibilities and gifts required for the ministry of the Diocesan Bishop of Toronto.  To accompany the written document, a series of video clips will be released highlighting the various aspects of episcopal ministry.
