The Reverend Canon Tony Bouwmeester – Interim Minister
In 2017 Canon Tony came to St. Paul’s as our interim minister. Prior to this he had retired from the Long Point parish. Tony emigrated to Canada from the Netherlands, settled in Ontario and secured a managerial role with a construction company. In 1983, after being called to the ministry, Tony entered Huron College and was ordained in 1988.
Canon Tony previously served the Huron Anglican Diocese in Tilbury, London, and Long Point.
We are grateful for his leadership.
Lori Holstein – Music Director
Lori Holstein came to St. Paul’s in 2020. She began her musical career at 15 years of age growing up in the Catholic Church and has been playing in the Anglican Church since 1997.
Lori and her family knew Canon Tony from days at Port Ryerse where she played and where Canon Tony baptized her youngest child.
Since retiring from 32 years as a speech pathologist, Lori has had more time to devote as church accompanist and St. Paul’s is blessed with her presence and her skills.
