Patti has been rector of the Parish of Mahone Bay since November 2021 and currently serves as Regional Dean for the South Shore Region. She came from the Diocese of Algoma in northern Ontario, where she was an English professor for 20 years. She was ordained deacon in 2018 and priest in 2019. As deacon, she served as honorary associate at Christ Church, Lively, and St. John the Divine, Copper Cliff. As priest, she served on the north shore of Lake Superior at St. Mary's, Nipigon, and St. John's, Schreiber. Patti and her English cocker spaniel, Lyra, love exploring the beautiful beaches and trails of the south shore while cats Simon and Phil keep watch at the rectory windows.
