OUR MISSION

We, the Church of the Diocese of Timmins, are a community of faith which strives to bring all people closer to the Risen Christ, and to meet their needs in these challenging times.

We are invited to invent new ways of being Church today.

The fact that “Though many we are one body” (Rm. 12:4) means that we recognize the dignity, uniqueness, equality and co-responsibility of all persons.

 

..a Brief History Diocese of Timmins… Suffragan of Ottawa

1882 In creating the Apostolic Vicariate of Pontiac, the Church begins the religious organization of Northern Ontario and Québec.

1898 The Vicariate, with the same boundaries, becomes the Diocese of Pembrooke.

1908 The northern part of the Diocese, up to the 47th parallel, becomes the Apostolic Vicariate of Temiscamingue.

1916 This Vicariate, with the same boundaries, becomes the Diocese of Haileybury.

1919 The Diocese is divided to create the Apostolic Vicariate of Northern Ontario.

1938 This new division permits the formation of the Diocese of Amos; the Diocese of Haileybury becomes the Diocese of Timmins.

1974 A further division permits the formation of the Diocese of Rouyn-Noranda.

1975 The Episcopal Residence and diocesan services are transferred to the city of Timmins.
