As an Anglican Parish, our clergy are appointed by our bishop and serve at his pleasure. Our Parish Council are elected representatives of the congregation who represent various groups within the congregation.  Together, the rector and Parish Council manage the 'business' of the parish.

Apart from his duties as rector of the parish, he serves as Territorial Archdeacon for the ANiC parishes in Eastern Canada, and is currently a member of the ANiC Council - the national governing body between synods.  

Father Darrell loves to cook and eat great food! He and his wife Sarah have been married for 9 years, are parents to a wonderful son and beloved foster children, and love to travel.
