Bishop Bruce Howe Resigns

Bishop Bruce HoweAt the beginning of the month, the Bishop of Huron, the Rt. Rev. Bruce Howe announced his retirement effective September 1, 2008.

Bishop Howe was ordained a deacon in 1969 then a priest in 1971 after graduating from University of King's College, Halifax. He began his ministry in the Diocese of Toronto where he served as Director of Social Services at the Fred Victor Mission. After that he served in Nova Scotia as rector of St. Mary's Parish Glace Bay then as rector of the historic parish of St. John's, Lunenburg.

Coming to the Diocese of Huron, he became the Dean of Huron and Rector of the Cathedral Church of St. Paul, London, Ontario in January 1988. The Rt. Rev. Bruce Howe was enthroned as the 11th Bishop of Huron on the 30th of November 2000. In June 2007, he was one of 4 nominees for Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada.

He leaves without making a decision on the blessing of homosexual marriage. At the May Synod the majority of clergy and lay delegates voted in favour of blessing of homosexual marriage. Bishop Howe announced that he would be discussing the motion with his fellow bishops and that he would make a decision after returning from his first mini-sabbatical scheduled from June 15 to September 30.
