The Right Reverend Mary Irwin-Gibson is the Anglican Bishop of Montreal

The consecration of Mary Irwin-Gibson to be Anglican Bishop of Montreal was held at Christ Church Cathedral on September 29, 2015, 7:00 pm.

The service of Consecration and Installation of Bishop Mary Irwin-Bishop Mary-Connie Middleton-HopeGibson as the 12th Bishop of Montreal was a traditional historic Anglican service with some added themes of interest.

  • The service was on Twitter at #MarysConsecration.
  • There was a prominent Native Peoples prayer and invocation accompanied by drumming and dance.
  • There were liturgical dancers using the space below the chancel steps, and
  • the service was conducted from the front altar in the chancel.  This allowed room for several bishops of the Canadian church, leaders of other faiths, and the many priests and deacons required to provide communion for the congregation.
  • There was awe-inspiring music from the organist, Patrick Wedd, and the Cathedral Choir.
  • The whole service was video-taped and can be viewed here.
  • Photos from a member of the congregation can be viewed in the Parish photo albums.
  • Please pray for Bishop Mary Irwin-Gibson as she leads this Diocese.
