Bishop Arthur Durrant Brown, retired suffragan bishop in the Anglican diocese of Toronto and a strong advocate of multiculturalism in Canada, died May 2. He was 85.
Bishop Brown served as suffragan bishop of York/Simcoe from 1981 to 1985, and suffragan bishop of York/Scarborough from 1985 to 1993. His longest stint as rector was at the predominantly black congregation of St. Michael’s and All Angels in Toronto, where he served for 17 years (1963 to 1980). Here, he turned the parish into a “home away from home” for Anglicans from the Caribbean. Ω
