I am proud to be a First Nation Cree woman. I understand Cree, and speak a little bit (apisis poko).
I have been married to my husband Gil for 45 years, and we have four wonderful sons, three beautiful daughter-in laws, eight beautiful grandchildren and five beautiful step-grandchildren.
I have been with our Parish for eight years, four years as the Pastoral Associate and four years as the Parish Life Director, and what a blessing it’s been. I thank our Creator every day for His many blessings.
I am a member of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer (the Redemptorists). I was born on a farm on the boundary of the village of Humberstone, itself on the boundary of the city of Leicester (in England) and I have found myself fighting against boundaries ever since (although this could just be a coincidence).
I have been the Pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe since 2016.
