Image - Elizabeth December-LovellThe Reverend Deacon Elizabeth December-Lovell, Deacon

The Reverend Deacon Elizabeth December-Lovell was ordained deacon in 2015. The ministry of a deacon is to act as a bridge from the gathered church community to the world, "to interpret to the Church the needs, concerns and hopes of the world...and to show that in serving the helpless they are serving Christ" (BCP p.543).

Elizabeth was born in Guyana, South America, and lived in Montreal and Toronto before settling in Ottawa, where she was a long-time member of the former parish of St Michael and All Angels. With her strong ties to the community and history of that parish, we are very fortunate to have her appointed in November, 2015, as part time Pastoral Associate in the new parish of Julian of Norwich. Elizabeth’s current work at Julian of Norwich is to provide and coordinate Pastoral Care and Christian Education activities.

Elizabeth has academic degrees in Public Administration and Arts, as well as training in Hospital Ministry. She is now completing studies towards M. Divinity at Saint Paul University, Ottawa.

Elizabeth is married to Malcolm Lovell, and they have two daughters Amanda and Vanessa.

You can contact Elizabeth at or by phone at 613-723-1980.
