The Reverend Monique Stone
The Bishop’s Office is pleased to announce that the Rev. Monique Stone has been appointment Incumbent of the Parish of Julian of Norwich, effective May 17th, 2018. The Reverend Monique Stone’s professional journey has taken many paths, from high profile roles in the private sector to consulting work in the areas of environmental and social sustainability. However, it is her work as Anglican Priest at the Parish of Huntley in Carp which has fused both her professional and personal commitments into one. Reverend Monique has been an ordained leader since 2011, and is well known in west Ottawa for her outgoing, approachable style, whether she is interacting with children, blessing animals or helping community members deal with life’s most difficult moments. No one, no matter their faith, background or circumstance, is ever marginalized in Reverend Monique’s presence. From pumpkin carving gatherings, to a “Hunger Games” themed Church service, to suicide-prevention programs, to encouraging cross-generational dialogue, her goal is to foster a dynamic where people pull together to make communities and lives better.
The Reverend Deacon Elizabeth December-Lovell
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 613-723-1980.
