Rev. Joan joined the ministry team at St. Nick’s, her home parish, in May 2022. Joan grew up in the Anglican tradition. Her journey as an active disciple of Christ began in the year 2000 when her then young son became a torchbearer at St. Nick’s. She asked, “Can I serve too?” The answer was “Yes.”
A pilgrimage to the Holy Land in 2010 led her to want to further explore her understanding of Christian faith and call to ministry. Soon after, she began her Divinity degree and retired from corporate life. Joan was ordained a transitional deacon in 2016 and a priest in 2017.
Joan served as Assistant Curate at St. Margaret in-the-Pines and Priest-in-Charge of St. David, Donlands and St. Andrew, Japanese. She holds a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Toronto, a Master of Business Administration from York University and a Master of Divinity from Trinity College (Toronto).
