As many of you already know, I am stepping down from my full-time role as Coordinator of Pastoral Care from the middle of May. Although the decision to leave has been a very difficult one, I am looking forward to what God has in store for the next phase of my life.

For the past two years, I have also been enrolled part-time at BC for a MA in Theology and Ministry and I am looking forward to completing my studies there. I am also relishing the opportunity to spend some more time with my family and will of course continue to serve the Collaborative “from the pews.”

I wanted to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you for the privilege of being present to share many of life’s journeys, both its joys and sorrows, with you. It really has been an honor to be able to minister to you in so many ways over the last years. I will always keep you in my heart and in my prayers. 

We have a wonderful faith community and it is my prayer that St. John-St. Paul Collaborative will continue to grow in vibrancy and love as together we live out our call to discipleship. 

With much love,
