It is our joy to share the news that The Rev’d Susan Haig has been appointed associate priest at Church of the Redeemer, effective Thursday, March 15. In addition to providing leadership in worship, Susan will be responsible for pastoral care.
For the past five years Susan has been the part-time incumbent of St. Theodore of Canterbury in North York and a psychotherapist in private practice. The seeds of her call to ordained ministry, as well as her passions for mental health and social justice, were sown during a year living and working at the original l’Arche community in France.
Susan practised law at Legal Aid Ontario for 20 years following her call to the bar and after ordination served for four years at All Saints, Sherbourne Street and then at the Church of the Incarnation. On January 27, she will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of her ordination to the priesthood.
She is the proud mother of Sarah, Seth, Hannah and Dave (son-in-law) and finds great joy in the company of her grandson Logan. She practises yoga and loves to cycle, hike, read, listen to music, and cook.
As Susan prepares to leave her current parish, we hold her and all the people of St Theodore of Canterbury in our prayers during this time of transition.
