The Diocese of Saskatoon is a diocese of the Ecclesiastical Province of Rupert's Land of the Anglican Church of Canada. Its territory is a band across the middle of the province of Saskatchewan. It was separated from the Anglican Diocese of Saskatchewan in 1933. The motto of the diocese is Sursum Corda - Lift up your hearts, a phrase from the service of Holy Communion. The cathedral church is St.John the Evangelist, built in 1912. Like many main line churches, the diocese continues to close parishes and churches, both rural and urban, and is serving an aging population. Many rural parishes are multi-point charges.
Previous bishops were bishops of Anglican Diocese of Saskatchewan, Bishop Hallam continued after 1933 as bishop of Saskatoon.
