Stephanie Wood has been appointed assistant curate to St John the Divine, Victoria and will begin remote-duties effective June 1, 2020.
Stephanie will serve the parish for the next two years. Her primary role will be to assist the incumbent, Alastair McCollum and to continue her formation to priestly ministry.
While Stephanie’s previously planned ordination to the diaconate was postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis, before his retirement, the bishop authorized her to act in the manner of a deacon and curate until such time that her ordination can be rescheduled.
Welcome to this new ministry Stephanie.
