Bishop Susan Bell has appointed Jeff Ward, rector of St. Cuthbert’s in Oakville, to serve as the Archdeacon of Trafalgar.
“I am delighted that Jeff has accepted this responsibility to share in the exercise of my episcopal ministry,” said Bishop Bell. “He has always been an immense support to me, personally, and to my ministry, and I look forward to having him as part of our diocesan leadership team.”
In addition to providing support and wise counsel to the bishop, regional archdeacons have a particular responsibility for church buildings, the well-being of clergy and their families, and the implementation of diocesan policy. They also serve as members of synod council.
Due to pandemic restrictions, plans for a service of collation have not yet been finalized.
