About DIP Grand Valley
Welcome to DIP Grand Valley Outreach (GVO) Kitchener


The Hamilton District in Process (DIP), more commonly known as Grand Valley Outreach in the Hamilton Diocese and the Southwestern Ontario region, was established as an official DIP of BLD-Toronto District on February 25th, 1998, as approved by His Excellency, Bishop Anthony D. Tonnos.  Manny and Bessie Gorospe, one of the founding couples of BLD Toronto District was appointed as the first Shepherd Couple to lead this vibrant community covering  the  Guelph-Kitchener-Cambridge Prayer area with 3 covenanted disciples coordinating the established Evangelization, Formation and Management/Pastoral Apostolates.  The newly appointed  bishop of Hamilton diocese is  His Excellency, Bishop Douglas Crosby.
