"After many years of Lay ministry I was selected for ordination to the Diaconate. I was ordained by Bishop Ralph Spence on May 3rd 2006.

​For the next 16 years I provided pastoral care for those in LTC and the Hospital. In January i submited my retirement notice to the Diocesan Bishop and was given permission to continue ministry under the direction of the Rector.

​I am now ministering within the Parish promoting the reaching out to the community, helping the congregation to develop programs that meet the needs of all who call on the Parish for support.

​I look forward to meeting with and listening to anyone in the community who sees a need that this Parish can help to make available."
