Who we are

We are a welcoming, friendly and diverse Anglican church serving the Rexdale community and surroundings for over 60 years.

“St. Paul the Apostle, Rexdale exists to honour God, and to enable questioning, open-minded people to discover for themselves the significance of Jesus Christ.”

As our slogan says, we believe in “sharing the love of Christ, whenever, wherever, however and whoever.”

We do this by being a vibrant congregation worshipping God, being of service to each other, being open to new directions where God may be leading us and to the many opportunities in our community.

Rev. Jo-Anne started her ministry with us in September 2016. Jo-Anne is passionate about how, as individuals and as a body of Christ, we can make a difference in the lives of people and a difference in our community. She has an empowering style of leadership, lots of energy, does her best to deliver thoughtful, understandable and relevant sermons, believes deeply in the power of prayer, and the importance of humour, has a pastoral heart, and says she couldn’t imagine how life would have turned out had it not been for faith and God.

Rev. Jo-Anne is married to Dieter, has two sons and one grandson. She enjoys time with friends and family, reading, travelling, the theatre and movies. She plays the piano, a few other musical instruments and loves to sing. Jo-Anne is an extrovert and enjoys spending time with people.   Edit
