A Message from Anne Mears

A Message from Anne Mears

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.”…

Discernment is an intentional attitude for making important decisions in our lives. It is more than making a choice or a pro-con list; it calls upon the Spirit of God for guidance. This program will invite us to listen for the ‘still small voice’ of Wisdom in discerning our last vocations as carefully as we listened for discerning our first.

Dr. Melanie-Préjean Sullivan retired from university ministry in 2018, after more than 30 years in secondary and higher educational settings…
