Mary Lou Whidden – Children’s Ministry Leader Email Mary Lou


I was born in Owen Sound, Ontario and grew up in the United Church. It couldn’t have been otherwise because I was surrounded by ministers in my family. My grandfather, father, uncle and brother were/are all United Church ministers. My own calling was to teach young children. I went to the University of Toronto for my bachelor’s degree and Queens University, Kingston for my teacher certification. I taught multiple ages from Junior Kindergarten to Grade Eight, specializing in teaching at-risk children how to read. After a fulfilling 25+ year career in teaching, I retired and moved out to Victoria to enjoy the company of my three children and three grandchildren. What a joy it is to be with them!  I soon found my spiritual home at St. Aidan’s and feel a deep commitment to being part of such a God-filled faith community!
