"Bishop Tom Corston retired on Dec. 31, 2013, which coincided with the restructuring of the diocese of Moosonee as a mission area. In a letter to the people of the diocese, he wrote that restructuring was a good way to to deal with the diocese's financial difficulties but acknowledged that he was saddened by its necessity". Corston "agreed to be an 'episcopal visitor' for the mission area, helping with confirmations, ordinations and parish visitations. Corston grew up in the diocese, where he was ordained in 1974. He ministered there for 12 years before moving to the dioceses of Fredericton and Algoma. He was installed as bishop in July 2010".
