Rt Rev Thomas Corston, the ninth bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Moosonee, has agreed to become interim priest in charge for an indefinite period to the parishes of Chapleau and Foleyet,
It will be a homecoming in a way for Bishop Corston who was born and raised in Chapleau and was an active member of St John's Church there. Also Foleyet was his first parish as rector after he was ordained to the priesthood in 1975.
Bishop Corston retired as bishop of Moosonee on Dece 31, 2013, but became assistant bishop to Archbishop Colin Johnson.
The announcement of his appointment was made on the Diocese of Moosonee Facebook page on April 6.
"Bishop Corston has agreed with the Archbishop's request to act as Interim priest-in-charge of the parishes of Chapleau & Foleyet for an indefinite period while the congregations work to define their future as a presence in their communities and, hopefully, the appointment of a new Incumbent. Bishop Corston will begin his ministry to the congregations on Sunday, May 3rd."
