Bishop Townshend has accepted the request of the Reverend Patricia Nunn to retire as the Priest-in-Charge of Christ Church, Port Stanley, effective January 1st, 2024.

Patt was ordained to the diaconate on May 1st, 1984 and to the presbyterate on December 8th, 1984. Upon ordination, she served as the Assistant Curate at St. George’s, Owen Sound with responsibility for the parish of Chatsworth (Desboro, Holland Centre, Walter’s Falls). In 1986 she became Rector of St. John’s, Brussels, St. Mark’s, Auburn, and Trinity Church, Blyth, also serving as the Regional Dean of the Saugeens. After a period on leave, Patt spent a number of years filling in at various parishes before beginning a long-time and meaningful part-time ministry at Christ Church, Port Stanley in 1995. In addition, Patt taught elementary school for over twenty years, retiring in 2020.

We are grateful for her faithful service and we wish her well in retirement.
