Leader Bio:
I came to Christ in 1984, when I was 26, and God has kept me close ever since. My early agnostic years were spent growing up in the Old Chelsea/Gatineau Park area of Quebec. As an avid sportswoman, I competed in equestrian events, and ski racing, competing internationally on the World Cup Alpine Ski racing circuit from 1974-1978.

I graduated with a BA from Queens University in 1987. In 1990 I entered a convent in England for two years to test my vocation to the Religious Life, and then moved out and took on the job of a Residential Caretaker on a North London Housing Estate for 10 years. Then the call to ordained ministry led me to 2 years of study in Cambridge, England, followed by a 4 year Curacy in North London.

Then it was time to be the incumbent of my own parish and our dear Lord led me back to my beloved Ottawa Valley and the parish of Eganville. I have been the parish priest for Killaloe/Tramore and Eganville for ten years, and was honoured to be named a canon of Christ Church Cathedral in Ottawa in 2018. I preach about and strive to live out our Christian calling to love and to serve one another, unconditionally, and very much look forward to getting to know more of you in our new Area Parish. I live in the Rectory in Eganville with my dog, Teddy, and love to ski, snowshoe, hike, canoe, and camp.   Edit

History of St John the Evangelist Church Eganville

The first services in Eganville were held starting in 1854 in private homes, before moving to the Union Church in 1863. These services were conducted by the priest in Pembroke. The first church was a white frame building built on property reserved for a church from the estate of John Egan.

In 1911 a disastrous fire destroyed most of the village of Eganville, including the church and rectory. The stone church now standing was built to replace it. It was partially completed in time for Christmas 1912 and was consecrated by Bishop Hamilton on June 2, 1914.   Edit

The power of Christian prayer I want to know Thee
Father, I want to know Thee, but my coward heart fears to give up its toys. I cannot part with them without inward bleeding, and I do not try to hide from Thee the terror of the parting. I come trembling, but I do come. Please root from my heart all those things which I have cherished so long and which have become a very part of my living self, so that Thou mayest enter and dwell there without a rival. Then shalt Thou make the place of Thy feet glorious. Then shall my heart have no need of the sun to shine in it, for Thyself wilt be the light of it, and there shall be no night there. In Jesus Name, Amen.
