Dates of existence



The Bishop's Men was established in 1952 as an advisory and supporting association to assist the Bishop in his work as head of the Diocese and to serve as well as a source of sustained funding for clergy. The terms of reference of the association are as follows: to provide financial assistance when the Bishop is confronted with emergencies not immediately covered by the Diocesan budget; to provide assistance to clergy and their families in times of serious financial strain; to offer their services when the Synod undertakes campaigns for the extension of its work within the Diocese. Meetings of the association were kept to the minimum and consisted mainly of an annual dinner with an occasional luncheon when the Diocese was honoured by the visit of a well known leader from other parts. Members of the association contributed $100.00 annually to the Bishop's Fund.
