I am a lifelong Anglican. I was baptised at St Michael's Church, Heighington in ,I believe, 1946. My father was a psychologist at a nearby borstall.

St Michael's Heighington

In 1948 the family moved to Belfast, NI, where my father had accepted a position as psychologist with the Belfast School Board. We attended St Columbas', Knock, Belfast

In 1957, we moved again. This time we moved to North Battleford, Saskatchewan where my father had accepted a position as a Clinical Psychologist at the Saskatchewan Hospital. We attended St Paul's Anglican Church.

In 1958, we moved yet again. This time to Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. We attended St John's Anglican Church. Where I was confirmed. Over the years, both my parents funeral's and my marraige were held here. I consider St John's as my "home" church. Due to the amalgamation of the three Moose Jaw Parishes a few years ago, St John's is now St Aidan's

After teaching for a few years in Northern Saskatchewan, we moved to Tache, BC, a small Native community located close to Fort St James, where we attended church and where our son, Robert, was baptized. After three years there, we moved back to Saskatchewan where I had accepted a position as a teacher at Cabri School, in Cabri, SK.

We attended St John's Anglican Church in Pennant, Sask. At the time the church was a part of the Parish of Prairie Cross. The Rector was The Reverend David Ashdown (now the Archbishop of the Diocese of Keewatin) It was David who encouraged me to become much more involved in the life of our church:

At St John's, I was the treasurer, Licensed Lay Assistant, Chair of the Parish Council for the PArish of Prairie Cross. I was also elected as a Synod Delegate, a member of Diocesan Council, a member of the Bishop's Committee on Ordained Ministry and for one term a member of the College Board for Emmanuel and St Chad (The Anglican Divinity College at the University of Saskatchewan.)

After Rev'd Ashdown moved to Regina, the Parish had a number of Recotrs, and after some time, St John's became a part of the Parish of St Stephen the Martyr in Swift Current.

I was a member of the Vestry, a Synod Delegate, member of Diocesan Council.

After I retired we moved to Lorne, Nova Scotia. We attend Christ Church in Stellarton where I have been Senior Warden for two terms. I am also Chair of the Anglican Churches of Pictou County

Currently,besides being a Synod Delegate, I am also a member of Diocesan Council. I have recently accepted the role as Chair of the Diocesan Parish Relations Sub-Committee. I am also a Lay Reader and am mentoring an EfM (Education for Ministry) program.
