The Diocese of Algoma was formed when the Diocese of Toronto was sub-divided in 1872. It covers an area of 113,000 sq. km. north of Lake Superior, Lake Huron and Georgian Bay.

St. Luke's, consecrated in 1870, became the Pro-Cathedral when the diocese was established. In 1892, St Luke's was enlarged with north and south transepts, a chancel at the eastern end and a belfry at the western. In 1952, St. Luke's was severely damaged by fire. In rebuilding St Luke's, the south transept, the bell tower and the intervening south wall were retained but the chancel-sanctuary of 1896 was demolished.

October 2, 2008, Rev. Dr. Stephen Andrews was elected the 10th Bishop of Algoma. Andrews, president and vice-chancellor of Laurentian University's Anglican federated Thornloe College, was elected on the ninth ballot. He replaces the Rt Rev. Ronald Ferris, bishop since 1995.

Bishop-elect Andrews, who is 52, holds a doctorate in Biblical studies from the University of Cambridge, England. He earned his master of divinity degree from Wycliffe College, Toronto, his diploma in Christian studies from Regent College, Vancouver, and his bachelor of arts degree from the University of Colorado. Ordained a priest in 1987, he first served as assistant curate at St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Halifax. A was rector of St. Alban’s Cathedral in Prince Albert, Sask., and dean of the diocese of Saskatchewan before joining Thorneloe in 2001.
