The Rev. Canon Steven Mackison
I came to the church in August of 2015, excited by St. George’s hopes and dreams for the future. I have a passion for worshiping with reverence and beauty, sharing the stories of our faith, and reaching out to the community, especially the poor and homeless. My family and I are grateful to be members of such a warm, caring, church in the heart of a vibrant and diverse city.
The rev. Josée Lemoine
I am the Assistant Curate and St. George’s is the first church where I serve as priest. Being French-speaking and coming from a Lutheran background, as a wife and mother of 4 adult children, I bring a colourful flavour to the ministry in this congregation. J’aime me mélanger aux gens, apprendre à les connaître et échanger avec eux dans les deux langues officielles. I try to do urban mission, with whatever that brings. If you are looking to experience church differently, don’t hesitate to come and share your great ideas with me!
I have been a parishioner at St. George’s for many years and am happy to also be working here now as parish secretary. I am learning a lot about how the services are put together, from the music to the prayers. I think St. George’s is an exciting place to be.
I love my job! I am the caretaker of this physical space and coordinate all our initiatives to help the poor and homeless of the downtown core. I was raised in this church; my parents were married here, I was baptized and confirmed here. I believe in community, social justice and giving people purpose.
We are doing something special at St. George’s and I invite you to join us and become part of what where building here; regardless of your gender, race, religion, culture or creed.
