Dear St George family,
A big thank you to both Jane Russel and Bill Pringle who have stepped up to lead us as People's Warden and Incumbemnt's Warden respectively. We look forward to this new season as they step up in leadership and we will be lifting them up in our prayers as they seek to fulfil the responsibilities of their roles.
So when you see them on any given Sunday, feel free to say hello and catch up on the goings on of our St George Community. Mini biographies included below!
Jane grew up in the Anglican Church first attending in the UK and then in Canada after her family moved. When Jane was in highschool her mum Cory, pursued her Master's in Divinity from Vancouver School of Theology and was ordained an Anglican Minister. On breaks from university Jane would accompany her mum on pastoral care visits, playing hymns and Bach on her viola. Now a mum herself, Jane wishes to provide the opportunity of a relationship with God for her little ones.
Bill has been actively involved in church life wherever he has lived. Bill moved to our church life here at St. George’s of the Pines in the winter of 2021 and was appointed as Incumbent Warden in the spring of 2023. Bill and his wife Mary have lived in many locations all over Canada as his employment as a RCMP member kept him on his toes moving him and his family every 4 years. He is now retired from the RCMP and lives in Golden BC where he has started up a photography business. Bill and Mary have two children and 8 grandchildren all of whom live in the Edmonton area of Alberta.
Bill is looking forward to getting to know all of you well and hopes that everyone will feel welcome to approach him to talk about any subject. He is also excited about being the Incumbent Warden and looks forward to seeing where God will be leading him with these responsibilities.
