Bishop Gary Gordon

Bishop Gary Gordon was born in 1957 at St. Paul’s Hospital, Vancouver. In 2014, he was installed as the 17th Bishop of the Diocese of Victoria. Prior to that, he served as Bishop of Whitehorse for eight years. In 2006, in honour of his connection with the people, especially the First Nations communities in the Fraser Valley, Bishop Gordon received the name Xyolhmetoxw, which means ‘taking care of the people’ in Halq’eméylem, the language of the Stó:lō Nation.

Bishop Gary’s care for the people has extended to forming the Capital Region Social Justice Action Committee, as well as continuing to be the CCCB Bishop ponens to the Interfaith Committee on Chaplaincy with the Correctional Service of Canada.

Leading by example, Bishop Gordon continues to weave a tapestry of faith in the fabric and lives of all those entrusted to our care now and in the future. Bishop Gordon has been a member of the Providence Health Care Society since 2014.
