Our Ministry Leaders
Reverend Jann Brooks
After a career in dialysis and pediatric palliative nursing, Jann discerned a call to ministry. She was commissioned as a Parish Nurse in the diocese of RupertsLand and went on to study divinity at Trinity College, University of Toronto.
She was ordained a deacon in 2017 serving at The Mission to Seafarers in the port of Hamilton, Ontario and at The Church of the Ascension and Church of St. John the Evangelist, both in the diocese of Niagara.
Reverend Jann brings strong pastoral gifts to our parish and is committed to bringing Christian mission to our neighbourhoods and town. Podcasting and live-streaming for the church is a particular interest for Reverend Jann.
Reverend Jann is married to Dr. Bill Brooks and they have two adult daughters. Joining them in The Pas are Hilda their cat and Dozer, their bouvier puppy.
Deacon Mike Dickens
His Journey began when he became an acolyte at Saint James Parish, Flin Flon, Manitoba under the guidance of Cannon Phil Sargent. Over the next few years his life changed and pursuit of a career path took the place of being a consistent attendee. During this time and several career changes, returning to Flin Flon, with a young family, the call to serve the Church became stronger, and more prevalent.
Returning to a Church home, became a Lay Reader, in the spring of 1989. Along the way, more responsibilities were gained, and endorsed by Bishop Malcolm Harding. All the while growing in his faith, serving as best as he could. After moving to The Pas, he served at Christ Church as a licensed Lay Reader, which grew into accepting the call to become a Deacon. Mike was ordained to the Diaconate Feb 2, 2013.
Deacon Maureen Maciesza
Maureen was ordained to the Diaconate June 29, 2019.
