Back to Ontario: Rector of St. Paul’s (1932-1943)

Bishop Renison was called to be Rector of St. Paul’s Church only five months after taking on the role of Bishop of Athabasca. He was replacing the long standing rector of St. Paul’s, The Reverend Canon Henry Cody, who had served at St. Paul’s for 40 years, 25 as rector. Canon Cody - a friend of Renison’s from when he was a student at Wycliffe College and Canon Cody was a lecturer there - was appointed President of the University of Toronto. He suggested Bishop Renison as his replacement at St. Paul’s. While at St. Paul’s, Renison started a weekly column for the Globe and Mail. (1937)
