Myron Penner

Interim Rector:
The Reverend Myron Penner, Ph.D.
Phone: +1-780-455-0771

 

Myron, in his role as Rector, leads and guide the Ministry of the church through a consensus based leadership as we seek the guidance and direction of Jesus through the Holy Spirit.  He guides and directs all staff in their various ministry roles. Myron will be a member of Vestry, which is chaired by the current People’s warden, and that guides the Ministries of the church.  

Michael is married to Jodi and together they have three daughters. They have just returned from a term of service in Bolivia.

His call to ministry is rooted and grounded in the Gospel Jesus Christ and focused in both proclaiming this Good News through word and deed and equipping our parish to to do this as well. His primary gifts are as a teacher, preacher and leader. He has extensive experience in Christian education, academic writing, Christian mission, and pastoral ministry in urban, rural, and intercultural settings (most recently in Spanish-speaking, Latin American culture).

Myron enjoys ministry at St.Paul's Anglican Church in which he can use his gifts in service to Christ's Church.

Lori joined the staff at St. Paul's in 2011.  She oversees a number of ministries in the church and is exploring the interesection between the arts, community and faith. 

Lori’s formal education includes a Master of Divinity, which she completed while doing part-time ministry to children and families, and a BA in English Literature with a focus on theatre.  For several years prior to undertaking formal theological studies, Lori worked as a doula, providing support to expectant mothers and their families. 

Lori grew up in Greater Vancouver and lived on Vancouver Island for 10 years before moving to landlocked Alberta where she lives with two spectacularly amazing teenage children.  But as a Metis woman she has deep roots in prairie land and a deep desire to engage in the process of reconcilation between indigenous and non-indigenous people in this country.
