Archbishop Fred Hiltz Installed as Primate
Archbishop Fred HiltzYesterday at St Matthews Church, Winnipeg, Bishop Frederick James Hiltz was installed as the 13th primate of the Anglican Church of Canada and national archbishop.

Bishop Hiltz succeeded Archishop Arthur Peters in 2002 as the 14th diocesan bishop of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. The diocese is preparing to celebrate in 2010 the 300th anniversary of continuous Anglican worship in the diocese and will host that year’s meeting of General Synod in Halifax.

In the past three years, Bishop Hiltz led the Leap for Faith capital campaign, which has collected $2.8 million of its $3-million goal to benefit youth ministry, congregational development, communication and organizational effectiveness.

He is a former member of the national faith, worship and ministry committee and the Council of General Synod.

Born and raised in Dartmouth, N.S., Bishop Hiltz graduated from Dalhousie University with a bachelor of science degree in biology in 1975 and from the Atlantic School of Theology with a master of divinity degree in 1978.

He was ordained a deacon in 1977 and priest in 1978. He served in a number of parishes within the diocese: Christ Church, Sydney; Melford-Guysborough; Timberlea-Lakeside; All Saints Cathedral, Halifax; and St. John's, Lunenburg.
