I am one of the “lucky” ones who has managed to escape the rat race of Toronto and now live year round on Pigeon Lake, just outside of Peterborough. There is nothing nicer than waking up each day and watching the mist rise off the lake. I feel very fortunate to live where we do. It’s like the best of both worlds – close to Toronto when we need our fix, and far enough away that we don’t have to deal with traffic. I am married to my best friend Nicole and are extremely proud parents of one daughter and a “small petting zoo of animals”. I am a chaplain with the Community Catholic Church of Canada. It took me years to find the right church as I strongly believe in equality for everyone – regardless of race, sexual orientation or religion. With that in mind, I am proud to be able to offer my services to those looking for a simple civil service or something more spirtually based.
