Honorary Assistants

Honorary Assistants are retired clergy who share in the life and ministry of the parish, usually by leading the occasional service and supporting the clergy team in prayer and collegiality. The Parish of the Valley is grateful for the ministries of our honourary assistants: The Reverend Gale Edmondson, The Reverend Canon Roger Steinke, The Reverend Allan Studd, and The Reverend Canon John Wilker-Blakley.

Licensed Lay Readers

We are also supported by a team of five Lay Readers: Wendy Cayen, Jennifer Cross, Thérèse Narbonne, Lorna Sibley and Bev York. Our parish's Lay Readers are licensed by our diocesan bishop and assist with ministries under the direction of our Incumbent.
