Notes
"The new diocese in northern Ontario will be known as Mishamikweesh -- a tribute to the old settlement of Big Beaver House a few miles from the Kingfisher Lake First Nation community, where the first native archdeacon of Keewatin, the late Dr. William Winter, began his ministry in 1965. 'It is symbolic and meaningful that we name the new diocese Mishamikweesh', which in Ojibway means "Big Beaver House",' announced Bishop Lydia Mamakwa to members of the Council of General Synod (CoGS), which met Nov. 14 to 17 [2013]. The new diocese will become official next year on the fourth of June -- Winter's birthday -- said Mamakwa, the current area bishop of northern Ontario, who will become the first diocesan bishop of Mishamikweesh". "The new diocese -- to be known as the Indigenous Spiritual Ministry of Mishamikweesh -- will cover 16 First Nations communities belonging to Treaty 9 around Kingfisher Lake, north of Sioux Lookout". "[O]n or before Dec. 31, 2014, parishes in the southern region of the diocese of Keewatin will become part of the diocese of Rupert's Land". Also, "on or before June 4, 2014, the Parish of St. James the Apostle in Thompson, Man., will become part of the diocese of Brandon".
