St. Aidan's Anglican Church: Our Team
Canon Dr. Kevin George:
P: (519) 471-1430
Kevin became rector of St. Aidanís on July 01, 2012. Prior
to his move to London, Kevin enjoyed a long tenure as Rector
of St. Markís by-the-Lake in Tecumseh, Ontario where he
served from 1998 till 2012. His first appointment was as the
Associate Priest in the Parish of Labrador West, in Labrador
City/ Wabush, Newfoundland and Labrador.
Kevin is a proud
Newfoundlander who looks forward to travelling to his
homeland to visit with his large family whom he credits with
shaping him into the priest that he is today. Kevin is a
proud graduate of Memorial University of Newfoundland where
he earned a Bachelor in Education, and of Huron University
College, where he earned his Master of Divinity. Recently,
Kevin completed a Doctorate in Ministry in Parish
Revitalization at McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago.
His thesis work was focused on Christian witness in the
midst of strengthened interfaith relationships. To Kevin,
diversity is a gift of God and ought to be celebrated and
welcomed in our families, our communities, our country, and
our world. To that end, he is comfortable ecumenically and
in interfaith environments and welcomes debate and dialogue
as a natural part of Godís will for our lives together.
Kevin is so comfortable
in ecumenical relationships he even practices it in his
marriage. His wife Catherinanne has her Master of Divinity
from St. Peterís Seminary, where Kevin and Catherinanne met.
(Kevin loves to tell people that he found his wife in a
Roman Catholic Seminary!) Catherinanne is the Director of
Campus Ministry at Brescia University College Ė her alma
mater. She also serves as a Reserve Chaplain in the Royal
Kevin is excited about
the challenges and possibilities that lie ahead at St.
Aidanís. He is thrilled by the strength of ministry for
children and youth and expresses gratitude for the strong
liturgical tradition at St Aidanís. He sees the time ahead
as a time to seek Godís direction for a revitalized and
re-energized community that will be equipped for ministry in
this new day and the challenges that it presents.

A cradle Anglican from Yorkshire, England, I obtained my
degree in History and Archaeology from the University of
Liverpool before leaving England in 1981 with my then
husband to live in Guyana, South America. I then came to
Canada in 1991. Apart from seven years in Blenheim between
1993-2000, I have lived in London since that time.
I have four children: Rachel
who lives in Toronto, Lucy who lives with her husband in
Edmonton and George and Joey who both live in London.
I was a part-time student at Huron College,
graduating with a Masters in Theological Studies in 2004 and
a Masters of Divinity in 2006, during which time I also
worked as a supply teacher for the YMCA daycare.
Following this, I served as Pastoral Assistant at both
Church of the Transfiguration and St. John the
Evangelist here in London for three and a half years.
I was ordained a Deacon in November 2009 and a Priest in May
2010 when I became Assistant to the Priest at Church of
the Ascension on a part-time basis; a position I still
In January 2011, I became the Interim Priest at Church of
the Hosannas, journeying alongside them as they made the
difficult decision to leave their building and re-organize
to become part of the newly formed St Aidan's.
I have also volunteered as a
Chaplain at London Health Sciences since 2002 and
occasionally work as a relief chaplain there.
I am excited to become a part of the new St. Aidan's
and look forward to whatever God might have in store for us
as we seek to share God's love for all people in the
community around us.
