Dear Friends in Christ,
I am pleased to announce that I am appointing the Rev. Canon Blair Peever as Archdeacon of the St. Lawrence, effective on December 1, 2023. Blair will follow the Ven. Nancy MacLeod, who has faithfully served as Archdeacon of the St Lawrence since 2015. Nancy has asked to step back from this work to focus on her other ministries.

My sincere thanks to the Nancy who has served faithfully and will now join the Chapter of Canons of St. George’s Cathedral.
