A description of the small diocese of Cariboo which has only 22 clergy in 45 congregations serving 170,000 square kilometres. Clergy praise Bishop Jim Cruickshank for his role in the diocese and his efforts to "foster a sense of family and create aplace where people belong". "There is also an inclusiveness that sees every cleric in the diocese share some area of diocesan responsibility. In this way, Bishop Cruickshank says, Cariboo is managed from the bottom up. The bottom up approach is shared by the diocese's priests who encourage lay leadership".
