Rev. Cheryl Black, B.A., M. Divinity, M.P.C. (Masters of Pastoral Counselling), joined St. Aidan’s in September 2015. Bringing years of imagination to her role, Cheryl believes that ministry is fun, that church is for community and that people want to use their energy to make positive differences in their surroundings. Cheryl has an informal style of leadership, encourages laughter and tears in worship, and loves to help people use their own gifts for a spirit purpose.
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!
